Wind energy - getting more efficient with Siemans new turbine

Siemens Wind Power has installed its SWT-8.0-154 offshore giant at the Denmark’s Østerild test center that is says will boost annual energy production by 10% when compared to its 7.0MW predecessor. “The installation of the SWT-8.0-154 prototype in Østerild is an important milestone in the success story of our offshore direct drive wind turbines,” says Michael Hannibal, CEO Offshore at Siemens Wind Power. “The evolution based on our platform strategy demonstrates that innovation to lower the cost of wind energy can work without compromising the proven reliability of a technically mature product.” The SWT-8.0-154 direct drive turbine is an upgrade from the company’s 6MW and 7MW offshore models. Therefore, Siemens thinks, the 8MW turbine will benefit from the established supply chain and already proven offshore components. MHI Vestas beefs up mighty V164 offshore wind turbine...
