Vestas has introduced the V163-4.5MW, expanding the 4MW platform. The V163-4.5MW features an 18 percent increase in swept area and delivers up to ten percent higher Annual Energy Production (AEP) at park level compared to the V150-4.5 MW depending on site-specific conditions.
With 80.1m blades, the V163-4.5 MW has a large rotor-size-to-rating ratio resulting in a higher capacity factor and an increased power output at medium and lower wind speeds The new variant shares most major functional and physical designs across modules with the V150-4.2 MW and the V150-4.5 MW. The V163-4.5 MW is globally applicable, although it is particularly relevant for sites in the USA, Latin America, South Africa and parts of southern Europe.
