The largest and most powerful wind turbine in the world has been launched in Denmark - its height is 280 meters.
The world's most powerful wind turbine has been put into trial operation. The Vestas V236-15 MW has been assembled for performance evaluation at the Österild test site in West Jutland. The rotor diameter of the installation is 236 m with a blade length of 115.5 m. The power generated at the peak reaches 15 MW. On the basis of this installation, projects have been developed for a number of offshore wind farms in Europe and the USA.
Implementation of industrial facilities using Vestas V236-15 MW will start next year. Wind turbines 280 meters high - the tallest in the world - will make their debut at the Danish wind farm Frederikshavn. It has also been selected as the primary unit for the Atlantic Shores offshore wind farm projects in New Jersey and for the New York Empire Wind 1 and Empire Wind 2 projects.
One such generator is capable of providing electricity to 20,000 households. Vestas V236-15 MW annual power generation reaches 80 GWh. This amount of clean energy is equivalent to reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 38,000 tons per year, or about the same as removing 25,000 cars from the roads per year.
Prior to the installation of the Vestas V236-15 MW, General Electric's 14 MW Haliade-X wind turbine held the record. But the Danish installation will also not be a champion for long. The Chinese are completing the MySE 16.0-242 wind turbine with a capacity of 16 MW. For trial operation, it will be assembled by the middle of this year, and serial production will begin in 2024.
