WHAT IS IT

The V100-1.8 MW turbine is designed for high energy production from low wind sites, with a greater rotor diameter that enables maximum output at low wind speeds. Due to this, the turbine delivers excellent return investment, even at sites where wind power plants have not previously been profitable. Designed, tested and manufactured for quality, the V100-1.8 MW makes even the lowest wind speed sites commercially viable.

WHERE CAN IT BE USED

If you want to ensure the yield of your low-wind (IEC IIIA) locations, the reliable V100-1.8 MW is an excellent choice.

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

The platform is tested and tried more than 7,800 times

What’s more, the V100-1.8 MW is based on the mature and reliable Vestas 2 MW platform. Vestas has installed over 7,800 of its 2 MW turbines around the world since 1999, which is now enhanced to maximise your output and revenues.

The 2 MW class is the most thoroughly tested turbine on the market, with a proven availability of over 97% in 2009. And now this platform has been improved once again and has a new standard-bearer: The V100-1.8 MW – specifically designed for low-cost energy production at low-wind onshore sites.

Designed for high productivity

To allow you to exploit the low-wind sites that you had to ignore until now, Vestas took on the huge technical challenge of using longer blades without compromising safety or availability. We were able to overcome these issues thanks to a rigorous design process using advanced 3D tools, and the Vestas Test Centre’s exhaustive assessment regime, which included both static and dynamic testing.
At 49 m long, the blades of the V100-1.8 MW sweep an area of 7,850 mē – a 23% increase compared to the V90-1.8/2.0 MW. This ensures that the V100-1.8 MW maximises energy production at even the lowest wind speeds, generating a higher capacity and yield compared to other turbines in the 2 MW class.

Excellent grid support

The VCS inside the V100-1.8 MW delivers a constant and consistent output to the grid. The system is able to maintain grid stability by quickly regulating the turbine’s power provision when needed. It swiftly responds to faults and other grid disturbances. The VCS also lessens the load on the gearbox and other key components, reducing wear and tear.
