DNV GL has awarded Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) with the Type Certificate for its 8MW offshore wind turbine SWT-8.0-154. Fully compliant to the international wind turbine standard IEC-61400-22, the turbine is now ready for market implementation.
The turbine has a rated power increase of 14% compared to the previously certified turbine variant. The 8.0-154 turbine is an upgrade of the 7.0-154, where an introduction of new cooling system, new controller and upgrade of the generator enables the higher power output.
