EnVentus™ represents the next generation in the evolution of wind turbines. It is the platform architecture from which new variants will arise.
Introduced in 2019, the EnVentus™ platform architecture connects proven system designs from the 2 MW platform, 4 MW platform and 9 MW platform turbine technology. The result is one versatile platform architecture that delivers a higher level of robustness and performance with the ability to create an even more finely matched combination of turbines to harness available wind energy in any specific location.
EnVentus™ based variants are designed with global applicability in mind. As part of the suite of Vestas offerings, EnVentus™ turbines offer a wide range of standard hub heights and modes of operation that can be combined with an extensive list of technology options to create customised solutions to suit the needs of each unique project.
Enventus™ Prototype Installation
The first EnVentus™ prototype was installed at the Østerild National test centre in Western Jutland, Denmark. The V150-5.6 MW™ produced its first kilowatt hour of energy and will undergo an extensive testing and verification programme before serial production commences. The on-track development of the EnVentus™ platform proves Vestas commitment to drive the industry forward by offering customers fully modular products capable of meeting project-specific requirements and further decreasing the cost of energy.
The EnVentus™ platform architecture is the result of meticulous and careful evaluation of an unbroken line of Vestas technology solutions. With more than 145 GW of wind turbine capacity installed and 40 years of experience in relentlessly pursuing better performance through technology and service, EnVentus™ is Vestas' next generation in the evolution of wind turbines.
Through advanced modularity in design, EnVentus™ aims to meet customisation needs more efficiently combining reusable modules depending on unique market and project conditions. EnVentus™ based variants benefit from a full-scale converter, capable of meeting complex and differing grid requirements in local markets. The full-scale converter is matched by a permanent magnet generator for maximum system efficiency and balanced by a medium-speed drivetrain. Combined with the extensive Vestas portfolio of solutions, EnVentus™ variants can maximise the potential of each unique wind site.
