V150-5.6 MW™ at a glance

The V150-5.6 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 25 percent compared to V136-4.2 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 241m. 

Utilising Vestas LDST tower technology, V150-5.6 MW™ can take advantage of favorable wind conditions at 166m hub height.
