The V162-6.2 MW™ is designed for low to medium wind sites and has extensive application in high wind speeds.

V162-6.2 MW™ at a glance

As one of the first EnVentus turbines designed, the V162-6.2 MW™ delivers excellent Annual Energy Production under low to medium average wind conditions for primarily pad-constrained markets.

Due to the large operational envelope, the V162-6.2 MW™ also has extensive applicability in high average wind speeds. 

With a standard Sound Power Level of 104.8dB(A) and up to 30 percent higher energy production than the V150-4.2 MW™, the V162-6.2 MW™ establishes a new benchmark in competitiveness.
