Vestas launches new 3-mw wind turbine for Europe

Em News Bureau ,  Saturday, October 20, 2012, 16:33 Hrs  [IST]

Vestas has launched the latest variant of its 3-mw wind turbine, V126-3.0 mw, mainly targeting the European markets. The platform is the one on which the older V112-3.0 mw is built. Vestas will continue to optimise this platform in order to offer further options to customers.

The new V126-3.0 mw turbine has a rotor diameter of 126m to target low wind conditions (i.e. wind class IEC III) and features a structural shell blade design. The wellknown blade design halves the capital investment in new production lines, improves flexibility in manufacturing, and at the same time maintains the reliability and high quality of Vestas' turbines.

In August 2010, Vestas released the first turbine in its new 3-mw platform, the V112- 3.0 mw turbine, which has been very well received by the market, resulting in an intake of firm and unconditional orders of more than 3 GW since the release.
