Windtech International May June 2024 issue






MHI Vestas Offshore Wind and Clemson University in South Carolina announced that the V164-9.5MW will have all testing and verification of the wind turbine’s gearbox and main bearings carried out at the University’s 15MW test bench.

The testing allows MHI Vestas to gain a better understanding of how the 9.5MW gearbox and bearings will react over the course of a 20+ year lifecycle. Through the utilisation of big data from the test results, MHI Vestas can optimise the service strategy for the turbine. The US$ 35 million total project investment will direct as much as US$ 23 million over five years to Clemson. The deal with Clemson University marks MHI Vestas Offshore Wind’s first major investment in the USA.
