V116-2.0 MW™ at a Glance

Vestas' V116-2.0 MW™ is built on the successful installation of more than 19,000 2 MW turbines. Globally applicable, the V116-2.0 MW™ is strengthening performance in medium- and low-wind, achieving AEP improvements of up to 4%*. 

With its 11 %* larger swept area , the V116-2.0 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 V116-2.0 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.
