The V164-10.0 MW™ Turbine.

Reaching an industry milestone.

Built on the track record and proven technology of the 9 MW Platform, the V164-10.0 MW™ is the world’s first commercial double digit offshore wind turbine.

The V164-10.0 MW™ incorporates a stronger gearbox, some minor mechanical upgrades, and a small design change to enhance air flow and increase cooling in the converter. The upgrades ensure that this gentle giant can run at full power, at a site with wind speeds of 10 metres per second, for 25 years.

  • Flanged connected drive train with easy-access key-components
  • Main bearings, coupling, gearbox and generator is possible to lift out separately for service
  • Permanent magnet generator
  • Full scale converter 50/60 Hz at 66 kV nominal voltage
  • Nacelle dimensions: 9.3 m x 20.7 m x 8.8 m (H x L x W)
  • Rotor diameter: 164 m
  • Swept area: 21,124 m2
  • Helihoist platform available

V164-10.0 MW™

  • The world’s first commercial double digit offshore wind turbine
