V150-6.0 MW™

The V150-6.0 MW™ offers a large operational envelope, optimising production in medium to high wind speeds.

V150-6.0 MW™  at a glance

The V150-6.0 MW™ lifts the larger rotor introduced with V150-4.2 MW™ into stronger wind speeds. Combined with its higher generator rating, it increases the production potential at turbine level by more than 20 percent compared to V150-4.2 MW™ in medium wind speed conditions. 

Applying Vestas’ most advanced aerofoil blade design combined with lower rotational speeds of the EnVentus™ drivetrain, means realisation of power production potential at very low sound power levels. A comprehensive portfolio of standard and site-specific towers allow for application in tip height constraint markets, varying from 180m to 230m. 

Utilising Vestas LDST tower technology, V150-6.0 MW™ can take advantage of favorable wind conditions at 166m hub height.
