V116-2.1 MW™ at a glance

Vestas' V116-2.1 MW™ is built on the successful installation of more than +42 GW of the 2 MW turbines. Globally applicable, the V116-2.1 MW™ is strengthening performance in medium wind.  

With its 11 %* larger swept area , the V116-2.1 MW™ is harvesting more energy from available wind and setting a new benchmark for park level LCoE performance.

This latest extension to the globally trusted 2 MW platform combines advanced aerodynamic engineering with deep, insight-based operational data to aggressively drive down the cost of energy where it matters - at park level. On a MW constrained site, the V116-2.1 MW™ benefits from larger rotors, delivering a more stable energy production with a higher power output at lower wind speeds. Ultimately, this means higher certainty in power performance.

2 MW Platfrom


Our 2 MW platform provides industry-leading reliability, serviceability and availability and is one of the most trusted platforms in the industry. The platform is built on technology that has been proven in the field over more than a decade.

With the latest addition of rotor sizes, the 2 MW platform offers a competitive selection of turbines for all wind segments. The platform’s predictability allows customers to forecast confidently, while the tried-and-tested design ensures energy production at the lowest possible cost on low, medium and high-wind onshore sites, even in extreme weather conditions.

In addition, remote monitoring and easy servicing keep operational costs at a minimum, while its highly-tested components and power and control systems enhance reliability.

With more than +43 GW of the 2 MW turbines installed since 2000, the 2 MW platform has become one of the most popular platforms in our portfolio, making it an obvious choice for customers looking to get the most out of their investment.
