Vestas V136-3.45 MW turbine now with Power Optimised Modes up to 3.6 MW

Dear Readers and Industry Professionals,

Greetings.  Vestas released Power optimised modes to it’s First V136-3.45MW turbine, so it can go up to 3.6MW.

The key points you might be interested to know as a investors and industry professional are

  1. Power Optimized mode can increase AEP by 2.5% (Site dependency )
  2. 166m tall Large Diameter Steel Tower (LDST) and
  3. an expansion of the turbine’s operational envelope to include medium wind (IEC IIB) conditions
  4. Manufacturing and supply chain localisation in China

This is simple and consolidated list from the News release..  to know more read here


News from Vestas :

Development of Vestas’ V136-3.45 MW is progressing to plan with the first turbine having now been installed and the first produced kWh expected before year-end. Vestas further enhances turbine output with release of Power Optimised Modes up to 3.6 MW.

As part of the development and verification process for the V136-3.45 MW turbine, Vestas recently installed the first turbine at the Østerild national test center for large turbines in northern Denmark. The turbine will undergo an extensive test and verification programme before commencing full-scale production, expected in second half of 2017.

Since introducing the V136-3.45 MW in September 2015, Vestas has added a number of upgrades to the design of the V136-3.45 MW and today adds Power Optimised Modes up to 3.6 MW to the turbine. Depending on site-specific conditions, this can increase annual energy production by a further 2.5 percent. Other upgrades include the 166m tall Large Diameter Steel Tower (LDST) and an expansion of the turbine’s operational envelope to include medium wind (IEC IIB) conditions.

“The successful installation confirms that we are on track towards full-scale production of the turbine. The bigger rotor, taller tower, and advanced aerofoil blade design make the V136-3.45 MW a very strong offering for customers across low and medium wind sites, and the new Power Optimised Modes further drives down the levelised cost of energy”, says Anders Vedel, Executive Vice President for Technology and Service Solutions.

In addition to Europe, the V136-3.45 MW turbine will be manufactured in China to leverage the continuous supply chain localisation in China for the global supply of the 3MW platform.

Vestas has installed more than 11 GW of 3 MW turbines in 33 countries across six continents and received the first order for the V136-3.45 MW turbine in December 2015 for the 117 MW Metsälä wind power project, Finland’s largest when completed.

Vestas receives first repowering order in USA

vestas

Vestas has received a firm and unconditional order for its first repowering project in the United States. The order includes 29 MW of V110-2.0 MW turbine components that enable future repowering efforts within the customer’s operating wind project portfolio. The turbine components will be manufactured at Vestas’ Colorado factories and will be delivered beginning in 2017.

Repowering existing and aging wind projects with new technology is expected to increase over the coming years with repowering offering substantial returns from increased annual energy production and reduced operating costs.

“The scale of technological innovation in our turbines in the last five years is breathtaking, and has reduced the cost of wind energy by 66 percent,” said Chris Brown, President of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada. “At Vestas we look for ways to add value through long-term collaboration and innovation in our technology and solutions. We’re pleased that these solutions will be used to repower existing assets and unlock even more value and performance from the fleet”.

Vestas awarded its largest onshore order in UK

v1173mw

 

The firm and unconditional order from SSE is for the Stronelairg wind farm located in Scotland, which will consist of 66 wind turbines totalling 228 MW. When constructed, Stronelairg will be Vestas’ largest onshore wind project to date in the UK.

Emphasising the flexibility of Vestas’ turbine portfolio, the order consists of 53 V117-3.45 MW and 13 V112-3.45 MW turbines. The tip heights of the turbines will be 135m and 125m respectively.

The combination of V117 and V112 turbines will optimise the site’s energy production and lower the cost of energy through the optimal use of larger rotor turbines, ensuring a high capacity factor.

“We are pleased to take another significant step on the Stronelairg project and look forward to working with Vestas to deliver a world class development. Stronelairg wind farm is a carefully designed project which will bring significant benefits to the local and wider UK economy”, says Mike Seaton, Director of Development at SSE.

Klaus Steen Mortensen, President of Vestas Northern Europe, adds: “SSE is a key player in the UK market and we are delighted to be partnering with them for the Stronelairg project. Not only will it be our largest onshore wind project in the UK, the order underlines the versatility and competitiveness of Vestas’ wind turbines in the UK market”.

The contract includes supply, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a 20-year Active Output Management 4000 (AOM4000) full scope operations and maintenance agreement. Delivery of the first turbines is planned for the third quarter of 2017, with commissioning completed in 2018.
