V163-4.5 MW WIND TURBINE:VESTAS TAKES ITS 4 MW PLATFORM TO A NEW DIMENSION

Following a decade of constant evolution and over 15,000 wind turbines sold worldwide, the 4 MW platform from Vestas has been expanded to include the V163-4.5 MW wind turbine. The new giant from Vestas seeks to make a significant contribution to accelerating the global energy transition.

The new variant optimises the scalability and modular approach applied to Vestas’ wind turbine platforms, as it shares most of the physical and functional design principles in every module with the V150-4.2 MW and the V150-4.5 MW. The new turbine benefits from the quality, efficiency and scale of an established and optimised global supply chain. From the outset, the V163-4.5 MW has been designed to minimise the impact of changes in suppliers, transportation methods, tooling and installation processes, as well as servicing and operational standards.

Based on the robustness of this supply chain, the new model increases the swept area by 18% and offers up to 10% more annual energy production (AEP) at wind farm level compared to the V150-4.5 MW.
