Due to the large operational envelope, the V162-6.2 MW™ is relevant for low to medium wind speeds and has extensive applicability in high average wind speeds.
With a standard Sound Power Level of 104.8dB(A) and up to 30 percent higher energy production than the V150-4.2 MW™, the V162-6.2 MW™ establishes a new benchmark in competitiveness.
Combined with a 3.6MW standard rating, V155-3.6 MW delivers comparable park AEP with 39% fewer turbines for MW-constrained markets.
Where permits allow, the higher rating variant delivers an over 3 percent increase in annual energy production compared to the V150-4.2 MW, while maintaining the same application space and noise level.
Combined with a leading capacity factor in low wind conditions, the turbine delivers a 21 percent increase in annual energy production compared to the V136-3.45 MW® while achieving a sound power level of only 104.9 dB(A) to serve sound sensitive regions.
V136-3.45 MW™ combines Vestas' most advanced aerofoil design to date with the proven 4 MW nacelle and Large Diameter Steel Tower (LDST) technology, to deliver high and efficient energy production in low wind conditions.
The aerofoil design, applied to the 66.7m long blades, enables a 16 percent* increase in annual energy production while at the same time minimising structural loads. Advanced aerodynamics, particularly at the blade tips, decrease the maximum noise emission level.
Vestas has 15 years of experience optimising carbon blade application, and the V136-3.45 MW™ benefits from advanced use of carbon pultrusions, resulting in light-weight, highly robust blades with optimal performance. The industry leading lightning protection system and highly accelerated lifetime testing ensure high product reliability.
Vestas now service more than 50,000 wind turbines and around 9,000 dedicated service technicians across 71 countries work committedly to maintain and support the biggest wind turbine fleet in the world.
As the world's leading fleetwide service provider, Vestas is undergoing a growing level of scale and volume that can support the acceleration of the global energy transition in the years to come. Backed by unmatched industry experience and data insights gathered by servicing thousands of wind turbines all over the world, Vestas have the resources needed to elevate the maturity of the renewables industry, and the systems that support it.
With more than 120 GW under service, Vestas helps remove over a hundred million tonnes of CO2 every year from the atmosphere by providing reliable, sustainable and cost-effective renewable energy, meeting global energy.
At Vestas, we are relentlessly committed to wind. That’s why we recognise that making the most of your wind farm is about more than engineering – it’s about capturing the maximum available wind to ensure the highest energy output at the lowest costs. Our unique Active Output Management® (AOM) service concept, based on our three decades of industry experience, helps you achieve just that.
To realise the best possible return on your investment, an effective operations and maintenance strategy is just as important as reliable turbines. We offer a flexible service product landscape (AOM 1000 - 5000) that you can tailor according to your needs.
With Vestas as your service partner, you get access to a one-stop-shop for spare parts and repair solutions across your fleet, independent of platforms. From over-the-counter spare parts on Shop Vestas to fixed-fee main component coverage services, Vestas can deliver a spare parts set-up that fits your business needs.
Our investments into innovation and R&D means that we also offer a broad range of industry-leading and cost-efficient repair solutions. It is all delivered through the combination of a truly global supply chain and a strong local presence, allowing us the bring our worldwide wind expertise right to your doorstep.
As wind technology matures, turbines already in operation can be upgraded to yield more energy and thereby improve an existing wind park business case.
Improvements of the production efficiency of a wind power plant can be carried out through site-specific optimisation of operational parameters, implementation of intelligent software algorithms, and enhanced aerodynamics add-ons. All designed to make your turbine work smarter and harder.
Vestas PowerPlus® can boost your energy production by up to 5% annually at virtually no risk. Our DNV-GL-certified siting process ensures that design life is not impacted. Our DNV-GL-certified validation methods accurately measure power curve performance improvements from the upgrades.
PowerPlus® covers a range of upgrade possibilities that can be combined or installed independently, counting Aerodynamics Upgrades, Extended Cut Out, Power Performance Optimisation and Power Uprate.
