Siemens Gamesa’s newest direct drive offshore wind turbine, the SG 14-222 DD, has a capacity of 14MW, reaching up to 15MW using the company’s Power Boost function.
The 222-meter diameter rotor uses the new Siemens Gamesa B108 blades. Each 108-meter long IntegralBlade is cast in one piece using patented Siemens Gamesa blade technologies. Additionally, the turbine has a swept area of 39,000 m2. It allows the SG 14-222 DD to provide an increase of more than 25% in Annual Energy Production compared to the SG 11.0-200 DD offshore wind turbine. The nacelle has a weight of 500 metric tons. The prototype is expected to be ready in 2021 and the new turbine will commercially be available in 2024.
