The V150-4.2 MW™ offers a very high capacity factor, optimising production at low wind sites.
V150-4.2 MW™ at a glance
Since its first installation in 2019, the V150-4.2 MW™ has been one of the most sold turbine variants in the Vestas onshore wind turbine portfolio.
Its high capacity factor leads to a 21 percent increase in annual energy production compared to the V136-3.45 MW®, representing one of the highest producing onshore low wind turbines within the 4 MW platform, while achieving a sound power level of only 104.9 dB(A) to serve sound-sensitive regions.
