The Haliade-X, launched by the US company with Parisian flourish as having a rotor-star “five times the size of the Arc de Triomphe”, will fly LM Wind Power’s lengthiest blade to-date, a hyper-long 107-metre model that eclipses the sector’s current record-setters by almost 20 metres. Each machine will produce enough electricity for 16,000 European households, with a 750MW wind farm able to supply one million homes. First nacelles are expected to be complete in time for demonstration next year and lead-off bids with the turbine, which we...
