While the new V155-3.3 MW turbine is globally applicable, it initially targets low and ultra-low wind condition projects in India and USA. It increases the turbine swept area by 67 percent in comparison to V120-2.2 MW, and with a large rotor to rating ratio, it improves the partial load production in low-wind conditions.
The turbine will be predominantly locally manufactured and sourced in India. Vestas will increase its manufacturing footprint in India by establishing a new converter factory in Chennai and expanding its current blade factory in Ahmedabad. Built on the 4MW platform, the V155-3.3 MW features a full-scale converter and with an optimised blade design and market specific towers up to 140m hub height, the turbine is designed to meet local transportation requirements. Prototype installation is planned for the third quarter 2021, while serial production is expected by the first quarter of 2022.
