GE Renewable Energy has announced that its Haliade-X 12 MW prototype has received a full type certificate from DNV GL.
The process of certifying the Haliade-X involved a series of tests on a 12MW prototype located in Rotterdam, a port city in the Netherlands, and tests of the turbine’s 107 meter blades at the UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult in Blyth and the Massachusetts Wind Technology Testing Center in Boston. GE Renewable Energy recently announced that the prototype has been optimised and is now operating at a 13MW power output. Testing will continue and the company expects to obtain a type certificate for the Haliade-X at 13 MW in the first half of 2021.
