MHI Vestas Offshore Wind has announced that its V164 turbine platform has now achieved a power rating of 10MW. The model is built on proven technology and lessons learned from previous installations of the V164 platform.
With more than 100 V164 turbines already installed in the UK and Germany, MHI Vestas has been able to leverage technological learnings and incremental innovations to push the boundaries of its flexible platform from MW now up to 10MW. The V164-10.0MW incorporates a stronger gearbox, some minor mechanical upgrades, and a small design change to enhance air flow and increase cooling in the converter. The upgrades ensure that MHI Vestas can run the V164-10.0 MW at full power, at a site with wind speeds of 10 metres per second, for 25 years. The V164-10.0 MW is available for sale now and can be delivered for commercial installation beginning in 2021.
