Size matters in offshore wind: Why costlier 14 MW turbines actually reduce the large-scale farm bill

Siemens Gamesa’s massive 14-megawatt (MW) wind turbine is set to become commercially available from the mid-2020s, furthering the industry’s push for larger and more efficient facilities. A Rystad Energy analysis shows that although they are more expensive to manufacture, choosing these giant turbines actually reduces overall costs for large-scale offshore wind farms.

Their added costs are expected to be mitigated by fewer required units and the efficiency gains associated with the newer, more technologically advanced turbines. For every project, there is also the cost of manufacturing a number of foundations, so the reduction in the number of turbines will also lead to fewer array cabling runs, which in turn reduces the installation scope. Rystad Energy analyzed the... ... More: Official Press Release Rystad Energy
