The most powerful wind turbine in the world V164 8-megawatt turbine for offshore use has been released by Wind turbine manufacturer Vestas . The first V164 was recently installed at the Danish National Test Centre for Large Wind Turbines, where it will undergo extensive field testing and performance evaluation.

The V164 was designed to minimize the amount of maintenance required and to make servicing as safe and simple as possible. Turbine efficiency tends to increase with size, and more powerful turbines minimize the number of towers, reducing installation and maintenance costs. Both factors allow wind farms to get the most power for the money. The V164 is built to last at least 25 years in the harsh environment of the North Sea. And when it reaches the end of its life, 80% of the turbine’s material can be recycled.
