The EnVentus platform will initially be available in two new variants: the V150-5.6 MW and V162-5.6 MW, together covering low, medium and high wind conditions. Based on advanced modular design, EnVentus provides a wider range of turbine configurations that can better meet evolving customer needs.

Anders Runevad, Vestas President and CEO, says “EnVentus is a great achievement by everyone at Vestas that allows us to meet customers’ increasing needs for customisation and continuous reduction of the cost of energy. Our relentless focus on delivering industry-leading revenue and profitability the past years has given us the resources to develop a new platform built on our world-class R&D. Following our 2018 order record and 100 GW milestone, EnVentus is another important step in Vestas’ journey to become the global leader in sustainable energy solutions”.

EnVentus combines proven technology and system designs from Vestas’ 2 MW, 4 MW and 9 MW platforms with advanced modularity, building a foundation that reliably and efficiently lowers the cost of energy. The platform’s first two variants: the V162-5.6 MW and V150-5.6 MW will be globally applicable and are added to the range of Vestas’ existing platform turbines, giving customers more possibilties for combining turbines to harness wind in any specific location.

With a swept area of over 20,000m2, the V162-5.6 MW offers the largest rotor size in onshore wind to achieve industry-leading energy production. When paired with a high capacity factor, the V162-5.6 MW offers 26 percent higher annual energy production than the V150-4.2 MW, depending on site-specific conditions. It is primarily relevant in low to medium wind conditions, but also has extensive applicability in high average wind speeds depending on site-specific conditions. The first V162-5.6 MW prototype is expected to be installed in mid-2020, with serial production later that year.

The V150-5.6 MW takes our existing 150m rotor and applies it to higher wind speeds and extended market applicability. When combined with its higher generator rating, the tubine increases the annual energy production potential by 30 percent compared to V136-4.2 MW depending on site specific conditions. It is primarily relevant in medium to high wind conditions. The first V150-5.6 MW prototype is expected to be installed in the second half of 2019, while serial production is scheduled for mid-2020.

Initially, the new variants are targeted at the onshore market, but may have offshore applicability.
