Haliade-X 12 MW Tower Parts Arrive in Rotterdam

The four tower sections that will be part of GE’s Haliade-X 12 MW wind turbine prototype have arrived in Rotterdam.

The four segments left GRI’s site in Seville, Spain, earlier this month.

After unloading the tower segments, a series of pre-assembly works will take place, including the installation of some tower segments, GE Renewable Energy said.

The Haliade-X 12 MW nacelle is currently being assembled in Saint-Nazaire, France, while its 107-meter long blades are being manufactured at LM Wind Power site in Cherbourg, France. The nacelle and blades will be shipped to Maasvlakte-Rotterdam and installed later in the summer.

This prototype will be installed onshore to provide easier access for testing. During the initial period of operations, it will allow GE Renewable Energy to collect data needed to obtain a Type Certificate, a key step to go into serial production in 2021, the company said.
