Since the V90 3.0 MW turbine was introduced in 2002, Vestas have installed more than 1,000 around the world. And now, with the launch of the V112-3.0 MW turbine, we can supply the world with modern energy that’s more efficient and reliable than ever.
Every aspect of the design of the V90-3.0 MW turbine has been rethought with the aim of reducing the cost per kWh. The lighter the turbine, the lower the cost of production, materials, transport and installation. These are the reasons why weight reduction has high priority in turbine development.
Despite the larger rotor and generator, the V90-3.0 MW weighs less than the V80-2.0 MW turbine. The V90 introduces a lighter, stronger tower and a ground-breaking nacelle design which produces more power from less weight. The blade structure, which is different from previous blade technologies, incorporates both new materials and a revised blade profile design.
Stable, high-output modern energy
Our new onshore turbine for low and medium wind speeds, the V112-3.0 MW can generate more electricity than any other turbine in the 3 MW class. Effective and reliable even under the harshest weather conditions, it sets new standards in turbine performance and efficiency.
Built using tried-and-tested technology, the V112-3.0 MW features the latest advances in blade and nacelle design to make the most of fluctuating weather conditions. And innovations in cooling systems and load-optimised operation enable the turbine to keep generating power when other systems grind to a halt.
The V112-3.0 MW integrates seamlessly with current plant configurations and complies with even the most demanding grid codes. And because it’s constructed with easy-to-obtain parts and components, it’s readily available and extremely reliable.
