V90-3.0 MW® at a Glance

The V90-3.0 MW® is designed to be low weight ensuring easy transportation and installation while reducing foundation costs thanks to its lower load.

The nacelle is lighter because its gearbox has an integrated main bearing that eliminates the need for a traditional main shaft. Blade weight is also kept to a minimum by using carbon together with glass fibre. The tower is lighter, too, as it uses magnets instead of welding to attach the tower internals to the tower wall.

This turbine delivers exceptional performance and a high yield, and can be supplied in a variety of hub heights (65-105 m) to accommodate site-specific needs. The tower for offshore is designed site-specific and is furthermore protected with a special offshore coating to withstand the harsh environment.


The Vestas Performance and Diagnostics Centre monitors more than 33,000 turbines worldwide. We use this information to continually develop and improve our products and services.
