V150-4.5 MW™

The V150-4.5 MW™ is designed for low wind sites, and is one of  the industry’s highest producing onshore low wind turbines.

V150-4.5 MW™ at a glance

Building on the commercial success of the V150-4.2 MW™ for low wind conditions, the V150-4.5 MW™ captures higher park Annual Energy Production with an expanded global applicability. 

Where permits allow, the higher rating variant delivers an over 3 percent increase in annual energy production compared to the V150-4.2 MW™, while maintaining the same application space and noise level.
