The V164-8.0 MW signifies a quantum leap forward in rotor size and energy capture. Reducing operations and maintenance costs by enabling customers to run fewer, larger turbines, the 164m rotor diameters offers you a swept area of more than 21,000m2 - the equivalent of almost three football pitches. When it comes to profitability the bigger the swept area the bigger is the revenue.
Using our three decades of industry experience, we’ve combined proven technology and innovative engineering to design the ultimate offshore turbine.
This offshore turbine has been designed with two guiding principles in mind: firstly, this new generation of offshore turbines is intended to require as little maintenance as possible.
Secondly, when servicing is required, it should be as safe, quick and cost efficient as possible. With the V164-8.0 MW Vestas 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 the scale and risk of investment required, as fewer turbines also means fewer foundations and less cabling
- Maximising the business case certainty and return on investment thanks to the 25 year structural life time – outstanding by industry standards.
