Windturbines met orkaancertificatie, 74 GWh/jaar
Een Haliade-X prototype 13 MW, geplaatst in de buurt van Rotterdam, heeft nog altijd het record van 312 MWh per dag! (oktober 2020)
Nu gaan ze naar 14 MW...
EGEB: The world’s most powerful wind turbine passes the typhoon test
Michelle Lewis - May. 3rd 2021
Haliade-X wind turbines and typhoons
GE’s mighty 814-feet (248-meter-tall) Haliade-X offshore turbine features a 14 MW, 13 MW, or 12 MW capacity, 722-feet (220-meter) rotor, a 351-feet (107-meter) blade, and digital capabilities. One rotation of its 220-meter rotor could power one household. One Haliade-X 14 MW turbine can generate up to 74 GWh of gross annual energy production.
And now the Haliade-X’s 12 MW and 13 MW models have secured typhoon certification from independent certification body DNV. It’s known as class T certification. That means the giant wind turbines are able to operate effectively in extreme weather that typhoons – and hurricanes, because they’re the same thing, just different global locations.
And imagine the power they’d produce. 4COffshore notes: “The Haliade-X prototype located in Rotterdam, operating at 13MW, set a new record in October 2020 by generating 312 MWh of continuous power in one day.”
Kim Sandgaard-Mork, DNV executive vice president of renewables certification, said:
Typhoon loads on wind turbines is of critical importance in emerging offshore wind markets such as Taiwan, Japan, Korea as well as parts of the US.
Wind turbines need to be designed for these extreme local environmental conditions to support the ambitious plans to develop multi-megawatt offshore wind projects.
With obtaining the DNV Certificate, GE Renewable Energy proves that the largest offshore wind turbine in operation – the Haliade-X – is able to reliably withstand the typhoons that are likely to affect it within their lifetime.
