Vestas take next step towards leadership in offshore wind
Vestas is introducing the V236-15.0 MW turbine. The new technology establishes a strong foundation for Vestas’ offshore leadership journey by elevating the industry benchmark for performance and continued cost reduction in offshore technology, making Vestas highly competitive in offshore tenders already in 2021.
Henrik Andersen, Vestas President and CEO, says “Introducing our new offshore platform is a huge achievement for everyone at Vestas, as it marks a big leap forward in a very important journey. As a global renewables leader, every decision Vestas takes today must be in service of building scale for renewables in the future – only by doing this can we ensure a more sustainable future energy system. Offshore wind will play an integral role in the growth of wind energy and the V236-15.0 MW will be a driver in this development by lowering levelised cost of energy thus making our customers more competitive in offshore tenders going forward”.
The first V236-15.0 MW prototype is expected to be installed in 2022, while serial production is scheduled for 2024.
