V100-1.8/2.0 MW™ at a Glance

The V100-1.8/2.0 MW™ IEC IIIA/IEC S turbines allow you to increase productivity by opening up low- and medium-wind sites which were previously regarded as non-viable. To maximise power output at such locations, the turbines' 100 m rotor gains more from the available wind – starting at an incredibly low 3 m/s. Thanks to the 49 m blades, the turbines deliver a notable rotor-to-generator ratio producing a remarkable capacity and yield at low- and medium-wind sites.

2 MW Platfrom

 

Our 2 MW platform provides industry-leading reliability, serviceability and availability and is one of the most trusted platforms in the industry. The platform is built on technology that has been proven in the field over more than a decade.

With the latest addition of rotor sizes, the 2 MW platform offers a competitive selection of turbines for all wind segments. The platform’s predictability allows customers to forecast confidently, while the tried-and-tested design ensures energy production at the lowest possible cost on low, medium and high-wind onshore sites, even in extreme weather conditions.

In addition, remote monitoring and easy servicing keep operational costs at a minimum, while its highly-tested components and power and control systems enhance reliability.

With more than 17,500 2 MW turbines installed since 2000, the 2 MW platform has become one of the most popular platforms in our portfolio, making it an obvious choice for customers looking to get the most out of their investment.
