MHI Vestas turbine reaches 9.5MW

As the cost of offshore wind energy production continues to fall rapidly – and following the recent start-up of the 32 huge 8MW wind turbines with their 80-metre blades at Burbo Bank – MHI Vestas is introducing a bigger 9.5 MW turbine, the V164-9.5 MW.

“As a leader in the offshore wind industry, we are committed to lowering the cost of energy through innovative turbine technology,” said Jens Tommerup, CEO of MHI Vestas.

“The launch of our V164-9.5 MW turbine is a testament to that leadership and to the ingenuity of our engineers and technicians. The V164-9.5 MW is built on the industry-leading V164 platform, the most powerful platform in operation. Just one single turbine is now capable of powering more than 8,300 UK homes.”

“With only minimal design changes, including a redesigned gearbox and cooling system upgrades, this turbine continues the legacy of the proven V164 platform and is available now to all MHI Vestas customers,” added chief technology officer Torben Hvid Larsen.
