V100-2.0 MW®

The V100-2.0 MW® IEC IIB turbine allows you to increase productivity by opening up low- and medium-wind sites which were previously regarded as non-viable.

V100-2.0 MW® at a glance

The V100-2.0 MW® IEC IIB turbine allows you to increase productivity by opening up low- and medium-wind sites which were previously regarded as non-viable. To maximise power output at such locations, the turbines' 100 m rotor gains more from the available wind – starting at an incredibly low 3 m/s. Thanks to the 49 m blades, the turbines deliver a notable rotor-to-generator ratio producing a remarkable capacity and yield at low- and medium-wind sites.

Features:

  • Vestas OptiStop pitch control strategy included to reduce loads and enable a lighter structure
  • Select products from the Vestas PowerPlus™ range are added to maximise output
