Vestas has introduced the V162-6.8 MW wind turbine of the EnVentus platform. The V162-6.8 MW is globally applicable and combines an increased power rating and operational flexibility to deliver up to 7 percent annual energy production (AEP) depending on project-specific conditions.
The V162-6.8 MW features flexible power ratings of 6.5 MW, 6.8 MW and 7.2 MW and expanded site applicability through an optional larger CoolerTop. The performance improvements are achieved through enhanced EnVentus powertrain and power conversion systems. The V162-6.8 MW will be based on Vestas’ new modularised nacelle concept, where the nacelle structure is divided into the main nacelle house containing the powertrain and the side compartment with the power system including converter and transformer. Both nacelle compartments are dimensionally designed to correspond to general industry logistics standards for road, rail, and ocean transportation with less need for specialised handling.
