MHI Vestas installs prototype turbine at sterild National Test Centre

Business and Financial Times

The installation will enable the company to monitor the reliability and performance of its wind turbine through a robust test programme.

MHI Vestas chief technology officer Torben Hvid Larsen said: The construction of the V174-9.5MW prototype at sterild is a much-needed signal that Denmark aims to retain leadership in the wind sectors industrial testing and verification programmes.

Now, with our latest flagship turbine constructed, we look forward to putting the turbine through its paces ahead of our first commercial projects.

The V174-9.5MW prototype incorporates limited design changes and builds on the proven V164 platform.

Featuring 85m-long blades and a rotor diameter of 174m, the V174-9.5MW turbine was first launched in February 2019.

Each turbine will have the capacity to generate clean energy that will be sufficient to power 9,000 UK households.

MHI Vestas said that the company has an order pipeline of 934MW for its V174-9.5MW turbine, which will be installed at various projects across Europe and Asia Pacific.

In 2022, the company will install the first units as part of the German offshore wind projects, Baltic Eagle and Arcadis Ost 1.

Earlier this month, MHI Vestas selected Port of Roenne at Bornholm, Denmark, for carrying out pre-assembly and shipment of its turbine components for the 257MW Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm.

Located off the coast of the island Rugen in Germany, Arcadis Ost 1 will be equipped with 27 MHI Vestas V174-9.5MW offshore wind turbines.
