The key difference between the modest-sized 900kW Vestas multi-rotor concept turbine and all earlier initiatives is that one of the world’s largest turbine suppliers is now behind it. The installation, undergoing a one-year testing and validation period, could become a blueprint for larger-scale future products focused on specific markets. Fresh thinking about future technology, challenging core scaling rules, using more smaller instead of fewer bigger components, risks and opportunities, plus transport and installation challenges in markets with less developed infrastructure, were all key project considerations.
