WHAT IS IT

The 164-7.0 MW introduces design choices to drive your profitability to new levels in offshore wind.

  • Maximising the amount of energy capture, not only with the huge rotor diameter of 164m, but also through an optimal rotor to generator ratio
  • Reducing operations and maintenance costs by enabling customers to run fewer, larger turbines
  • Reducing the scale and risk of investment required, as fewer turbines also means fewer foundations and less cabling

WHERE CAN IT BE USED

For every offshore wind power plant.

WHY IS IT GREEN

Wind power is clean

Wind power produces energy, pure and simple. No CO2, no other greenhouse gasses, no hazardous waste left behind as a poisonous legacy for future generations. And, unlike coal and nuclear plants, it doesn’t swallow huge amounts of water – which is itself becoming a scarce resource.

Clean energy efficiency for the entire life cycle

A Vestas 3.0 MW wind turbine produces the same amount of electricity as 13,000 barrels of oil each year – without the emissions. But clean energy also has to be assessed on a power plant’s entire life cycle, from construction to dismantling. Even with the environmental impact of raw materials, manufacturing, transport, service and disposal, a Vestas 3.0 MW onshore turbine is carbon neutral after only 6.6 months of energy production. As a further benefit, 80 per cent of each turbine we make is recyclable.

Leading the world in sustainable energy

At Vestas, we already lead the world in turning wind power into clean, sustainable electricity. But we also want to lead by example. So by 2020, more than 90 per cent of our own internal energy needs will be met by clean electricity.

OTHER INFORMATION

At Vestas, the design and planning of a new wind power project always begins the same way – by listening to you, the customer, and understanding your commercial needs and how to turn them into reality.

Although the cost of the turbines typically represents approximately one third of the total capital expenditure for an offshore project, logistical decisions – such as weight, size, service access, etc. – impacts on other costs along the value chain. That’s why we consider all the factors at an overall project level, rather than simply at an individual turbine level.

Business case certainty is key. Using our three decades of industry experience, we’ve combined proven technology and innovative engineering to design the ultimate offshore turbine.

Previous offshore turbine types have been adapted from onshore equivalents. The V164-7.0 MW is taking the full step and has been designed from the first nut to the last bolt with challenging offshore conditions in mind.

By raising the bar for the industry, we’ve created the most convincing financial proposition ever for offshore energy investment.

Green Attributes

Our intent with green attributes is to highlight to specifiers or end users what makes a product green. Is the product made with recycled or agricultural waste content, does it save energy, water or waste, does it conserve natural resources, does it avoid toxic or other emissions, does it contribute to a safe, healthy indoor environment, and is it locally available, etc. Click on any of the icons for an explanation of the attribute.
