LM Wind Power has completed installation and testing of a 66.5 meter wind turbine blade, ordered by Hitachi for offshore application. LM Wind Power and Hitachi commenced installation of the 66.5 meter blade in 2016 with the aim of optimising Hitachi's 5.2MW platform to operate effectively also in lower wind sites.
The new LM Wind Power blades will now enable Hitachi to offer their 5.2MW wind turbine with a rotor size of 136 meters. The 66.5 meter blades have been tested on a wind turbine of the Kashima Port Fukashiba Wind Power Station in east Japan since October last year. The 66.5 meter blades were produced in LM Wind Power's blade manufacturing facility in Jiangyin, China.
