V112-3.45 MW®

The V112-3.45 MW® is designed for high wind sites and offers high grid compatibility.

V112-3.45 MW® at a glance

The V112-3.45 MW® IEC IA is a high-wind turbine and has a very high capacity factor. Similar to the other 4 MW turbines, the V112-3.45 MW® IEC IA turbine makes efficient use of its grid compatibility and is an optimal choice for sites with MW constraints.

On high wind-sites the V105-3.45 MW™, V112-3.45 MW® and V117-3.45 MW® are excellent turbine choices. A combination of the three variants can optimise your site layout and improve your production significantly. Due to the similar electrical properties, sound emissions and nacelle design, it is easy to mix and match the turbines from the 4 MW platform to maximise production on heavily constrained sites.

4 MW

The Vestas 4 MW platform sets new standards for onshore wind performance within regimes ranging from very strong wind and typhoon conditions to low wind.

IEC IA

The V112-3.45 MW® IEC IA is designed for high-wind sites.

+59 GW

The performance and versatility of the 4 MW platform has been proven with more than 59 GW installed in 56 countries since 2010.

Related wind turbines

V105-3.45 MW™

The V105-3.45 MW™ IEC IA is the turbine that fits the most severe wind conditions with high turbulence and is especially suited for markets with tip-height restrictions and high grid requirements.

V117-3.45 MW®

The V117-3.45 MW® IEC IB/IEC IIA is a solid choice for medium- and high-wind sites with high turbulence onshore.

V126-3.45 MW®

The V126-3.45 MW® IEC IIB/IEC IIA is the ideal choice for medium-wind sites with high turbulence onshore. The 126 m rotor enables greater wind capture, which in turn produces more energy at a reduced cost.
