V120-2.2 MW™ at a glance

Vestas' V120-2.2 MW™ is built on the successful installation of more than 41 GW of the 2 MW turbines. The V120-2.2 MW™ is built to generate more energy in stable low to medium wind conditions, achieving AEP improvements of up to 14%*.

With its 19 %* larger swept area , the V120-2.2 MW™ is harvesting more energy from available wind and setting a new benchmark for park level LCoE performance.

This latest extension to the globally trusted 2 MW platform combines advanced aerodynamic engineering with deep, insight-based operational data to aggressively drive down the cost of energy where it matters - at park level. On a MW constrained site, the V120-2.2 MW™ benefits from larger rotors, delivering a more stable energy production with a higher power output at lower wind speeds. Ultimately, this means higher certainty in power performance.

V120-2.0 MW™ prototype installed

The V120-2.0 MW prototype is operating at the Lem Kær wind park in Western Jutland, Denmark, and has produced its first kilowatt hour of electricity. The prototype will undergo an extensive test and verification programme to ensure reliability before full-scale production commences prior to the first deliveries. The turbine at Lem Kær will be converted into a V120-2.2 MW prototype in the fourth quarter of 2018. 

Having announced the V120-2.0 MW turbine in the spring of 2017, the upgraded V120-2.2 MW includes a stronger gearbox and reinforced blades that strengthen performance in higher wind and turbulence conditions.


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 41 GW of the 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.
