Vestas Launches Next Generation Offshore Turbine

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/30/2011, Location: Europe

At a press conference in London at 12.30 local time Vestas reveals the details of its next generation offshore turbine. Instead of the previously communicated capacity of 6.0 MW, the turbine will have a capacity of 7.0 MW and a rotor diameter of 164 metrers.

Construction of the first V164-7.0 MW prototypes is expected in Q4 2012. Serial production is set to begin in Q1 2015 provided a firm order backlog is in place to justify the substantial investment needed to develop the new production and assembly facilities required for a turbine of this size.

Further details of the new turbine will be uploaded to vestas.com immediately after the press meeting.
