V136-3.45 MW®

V136-3.45 MW® combines advanced aerofoil design with the proven 4 MW nacelle and Large Diameter Steel Tower (LDST) technology, to deliver high and efficient energy production in low- and medium-wind conditions.

V136-3.45 MW® at a glance

V136-3.45 MW® combines advanced aerofoil design with the proven 4 MW nacelle and Large Diameter Steel Tower (LDST) technology, to deliver high and efficient energy production in low- and medium-wind conditions.

The aerofoil design, applied to the 66.7m long blades, enables a 16 percent* increase in annual energy production while at the same time minimising structural loads. Advanced aerodynamics, particularly at the blade tips, and aero add-ons such as Serrated Trailing Edges decrease the maximum noise emission level.

Vestas has 15 years of experience optimising carbon blade application, and the V136-3.45 MW® benefits from advanced use of carbon pultrusions, resulting in light-weight, highly robust blades with optimal performance. The industry leading lightning protection system and highly accelerated lifetime testing ensure high product reliability.

IEC IIB classification

Supported by focused design and optimisation activities, the V136-3.45 MW® is now capable of operating in both IEC IIIA and IEC IIB wind conditions.

With the IEC IIB classification of the V136-3.45 MW®, the turbine is now covering an even broader range of wind and site conditions, where the 136 m rotor enables great wind capture, at medium-wind conditions.

This makes the V136-3.45 MW® turbine a strong performer with the potential to increase AEP by up to 16 %*, contributing to a lower LCoE.

The V136-3.45 MW® as an IEC IIB turbine is already being applied to medium-wind conditions for projects in North America and Asia, giving our customers the possibility of choosing the V136-3.45 MW® turbine’s compelling balance between advanced technology and proven performance.
