Flagship Siemens Gamesa Offshore Wind Turbine Sparks to Life
The SG 14-236 DD prototype, Siemens Gamesa’s largest ever wind turbine, has produced its first power and delivered it to the grid.
With 115-metre-long blades and a rotor diameter of 236 metres, the turbine’s capacity of up to 15 MW with Power Boost allows it to produce 30 per cent more energy than its predecessor, the SG 11.0-200 DD, Siemens Gamesa said.
The prototype wind turbine was fully installed at the Danish national test centre for large wind turbines in Østerild in February.
Expected to be commercially available next year, SG 14-236 DD is Siemens Gamesa’s largest and most powerful model to date and one of the most powerful wind turbines now coming to the market.
The model has so far been selected to supply projects totaling nearly 2.8 GW in Denmark and Poland, Siemens Gamesa said.
