The V136-3.45 MW wind turbine is the newest variant of the proven 3 MW platform, which Vestas continuously optimises to strengthen its product offerings. Raising the bar for low-wind site performance, the V136-3.45 MW wind turbine combines Vestas’ largest onshore rotor diameter, the Vestas-patented Large Diameter Steel Tower technology, and Vestas’ most advanced blade design to-date. The new wind turbine enables Vestas to increase annual energy production by more than 10 percent compared to the V126-3.3 MW, while at the same reduces both levelised cost of energy and sound emissions in low-wind conditions.
Anders Vedel, Executive Vice President for Technology and Service Solutions, says that: “Combining advanced technology and the proven performance of the 3 MW platform enables the V136-3.45 MW to reduce the cost of energy even further. The bigger rotor, taller tower, and advanced aerofoil blade design make this new wind turbine variant ideal for low-wind sites, which comprise an increasingly important market segment in some countries.”
