DNV GL certifies new prototype of Siemens’ 8 MW offshore wind turbine

“We are happy that the certification journey of the Siemens direct drive offshore wind turbine continues from the 7 MW to the even bigger 8 MW turbine together with DNV GL. With our certification services we support Siemens to meet customer expectations to provide the industry with an optimised turbine with an even higher output rate to reduce the levelized cost of energy.” The SWT-8.0-154 turbine is an evolution of the SWT-6.0-154 and the SWT-7.0-154 turbines. The main changes going from SWT-7.0-154 to the SWT-8.0-154 turbine consist of an upgraded generator including the adjacent electrical system and an advanced control system. The upgrade of the offshore direct drive wind turbine to eight megawatts is made possible through the introduction of new magnet technology with an even higher grade than that introduced in the SWT-7.0-154. This enables a rated power increase of more than 14% from 7.0 to 8.0 MW.
