MHI Vestas Launches Record-Breaking 10MW Wind Turbine

Denmark-based offshore wind turbine maker MHI Vestas says it has broken the industry’s double-digit power barrier with the release of the world’s first turbine to achieve a power rating of 10 MW.

The record-breaking turbine, called the V164-10.0 MW, builds on the company’ popular V164 platform, with more than 100 V164 turbines already installed in the UK and Germany.

With the 10 MW rating, the V164-10.0 MW model is now the most powerful commercially-available wind turbine in the world – onshore or off.

“What was unreachable before has become the new benchmark,” said MHI Vestas CEO, Philippe Kavafyan. “In launching the V164-10.0 MW today, MHI Vestas is proud to contribute this major milestone to the offshore wind industry. And it gives us the opportunity to pay tribute to all the wind industry pioneers who have led us to this historic, double-digit nominal capacity.”

With an approximate tip height of 187 meters, the V164-10.0 MW model is fitted with 80-meter blades for a rotor diameter of 164 meters. The also model incorporates a stronger gearbox, some minor mechanical upgrades, and a small design change that enhances airflow and increases cooling in the converter. According to MHI Vestas, these upgrades mean the V164-10.0 MW can run at full power at a site with wind speeds of 10 meters per second for 25 years.

“At MHI Vestas, we are focused not on what others are doing, but being the best at what we do,” said MHI Vestas Chief Technology Officer, Torben Hvid Larsen. “The V164-10.0 MW turbine is the best proof point yet that we do not accept the limitations of conventional thinking and that we think beyond ourselves. We have embraced the challenge of transforming what is possible in our field.”

The V164-10.0 MW is available for sale now and can be delivered for commercial installation beginning in 2021.
