    • V164-8.0 MW Offshore

    • The V164-8.0 MW signifies a quantum leap forward in rotor size and energy capture. Reducing operations and maintenance costs by enabling customers to run fewer, larger turbines, the 164m rotor diameters offers you a swept area of more than 21,000m2 - the equivalent of almost three football pitches. When it comes to profitability the bigger the swept area the bigger is the revenue.
      Using our three decades of industry experience, we’ve combined proven technology and innovative engineering to design the ultimate offshore turbine.
      This offshore turbine has been designed with two guiding principles in mind: firstly, this new generation of offshore turbines is intended to require as little maintenance as possible.
      Secondly, when servicing is required, it should be as safe, quick and cost efficient as possible. With the V164-8.0 MW Vestas introduces design choices to drive your profitability to new levels in offshore wind:
      • Maximising the amount of energy capture, not only with the huge rotor diameter of 164m, but also through an optimal rotor to generator ratio
      • Reducing the scale and risk of investment required, as fewer turbines also means fewer foundations and less cabling
      • Maximising the business case certainty and return on investment thanks to the 25 year structural life time – outstanding by industry standards.

  • Wind power plants

    • Wind Project Planning

    • When you’re planning a wind power plant, you need to consider a broad range of factors over the entire lifecycle of the project. These range from financing and siting, to grid requirements and the regulatory framework.

      After installing over 43,000 wind turbines throughout the world, we have a huge amount of expertise in these areas. We work closely with our customers during the planning phase to capitalise on this knowledge and build a successful project.

      Financing
      One of the first steps in planning a wind power plant is to obtain financing for the project.
      When banks consider the financing of a wind power project, they tend to focus on the underlying credit-worthiness of the project participants. That’s why it’s good to choose Vestas. We’re a global organisation built on 25 years’ experience in the wind industry, and we have installed over 43,000 turbines worldwide. In the eyes of your lenders and investors, that makes us a reliable and trustworthy partner for your wind power project. We can contribute to the success of your financing by providing business case certainty through our proven technology and product reliability.

      Policy and Regulatory Framework
      In the planning phase of a wind power plant, it’s crucial to know about the policies and regulatory frameworks that are in place locally in the markets, as well as the enforcement of rules relating to wind energy.
      The mission of Vestas specialised departments for policy and regulatory framework is a simple one: to maximise business case certainty for wind power projects through policy recommendations.

      Onshore or offshore wind power plants
      The offshore potential for wind energy is enormous. If offshore wind farms covered just 10 per cent of the North Sea, they could generate electricity equivalent to the total annual consumption of the 27 members of the EU.
      Our offshore track record : At Vestas, we focus on reduced energy costs. Since 1995 we have installed more than 580 offshore wind turbines, providing a total capacity of over 1400 MW.

      Siting
      To estimate the energy production of a wind power plant, it is essential to have exceptional knowledge of the wind resource. With our extensive experience and expertise, Vestas is able to optimise the layout of even the most complex sites, by considering turbine choice and micro-siting.

      Support for grid code compliance
      Grid codes specify the electrical performance and documentation that a wind power plant needs to gain connection to a grid. Demonstrating grid code compliance and achieving a grid connection agreement are therefore essential milestones in the development of a wind power plant project - which is where Vestas comes in.

      How Vestas can help you connect
      We provide support in assessing and optimising the overall electrical configuration and performance of a wind power plant, so that the increasingly challenging requirements of grid connection are met.

      Technical information
      Technical information is key during the planning and sales process of a wind power plant, as it enables you to make informed purchase decisions that improve your business case certainty.
      The need for a more thorough knowledge and insight into our products is occasionally identified by the customer. Vestas therefore offers a technical due diligence to the customers of large wind projects in the last phase of the sales process. A technical due diligence assessment is an investigation that includes technical documentation and processes for the lifetime of the wind power plant.

    • Procurement

    • With Vestas as your supplier and business partner, you are basing your investment on finely tuned processes refined over three decades of experience and knowledge.

      We check and test all our turbines at our own test centres, and we ensure that the results are independently verified. We also continuously monitor many of our operational turbines, capturing data from over 15,000 wind turbines across the world. This data provides us with the complex information and sophisticated tools we need to make turbine operation even more reliable and cost-effective, wherever the location and whatever the wind conditions.
    • Construction

    • During the construction phase, the wind power plant is built and connected to the grid. There is a huge number of tasks involved to ensure this happens efficiently and effectively, carried out by both the developer and Vestas.

      Precisely who does what will differ from project to project depending on the risk profile. Working closely with the client, we can provide everything from an inclusive package, where we supply, install and calibrate the plant, to simply supplying the turbines.
    • Operation and service

    • You need to consider a large number of factors when operating a wind farm. It has to be serviced, it has to be managed effectively to get the most out of the turbines, you have to train people to operate it, and it has to be insured. We can help with all these issues, and more.

      We provide a range of different offerings, such as service and training, and work in close collaboration with our customers to help them find the optimum solution for operating their wind power plant.

      Service
      Wind turbines need to be continually serviced to perform consistently at their best. Harsh weather conditions over the course of a turbine’s typical 20 year service life can reduce the overall performance of a site, resulting in a loss of earnings and a poor return on your investment.

      Our Active Output Management® service programme, or AOM for short, ensures the highest possible output at all times, so your return on investment is achievable and more secure.

      SCADA

      Once the wind power plant is up and running, the operator want to ensure it consistently performs at its best. It’s therefore crucial to monitor and control the performance of the turbines, which is where our state-of-the-art SCADA-system, VestasOnline®, comes in.
      SCADA stands for Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition. It is a system that monitors and controls the wind power plant. VestasOnline®, our SCADA system, comprises the following components:

      • Wind power plant server - VestasOnline® server application for operating and managing wind power plants, including remote communication interface
      • Business client - VestasOnline® client application with operator interface
      • Communication network - fibre-optic cables and switches connecting the server to the turbines
      • Various options and add-ons – VestasOnline® can be tailored to your needs
    • Power plant optimisation

    • By using predictive and preventive maintenance techniques, we can identify potential problems before they arise and take action to address them, helping to reduce down time and optimise the yield for Vestas turbines worldwide.

      We do this by monitoring 16,000 wind turbines around the globe, making sure we know the precise status of our turbines and how they are performing on a daily basis, across all kinds of sites and in all wind conditions.
