        Using our three decades of industry experience, we’ve combined proven technology and innovative engineering to design the ultimate offshore turbine. A turbine that introduces an optimal rotor to generator ratio, and design choices to drive your profitability to new levels in offshore 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.

      Having installed more than 50,000 wind turbines throughout the world, we have remarkable expertise in these areas. We work closely with our customers during the planning phase to capitalise on this knowledge and build successful projects.
        • SiteHunt®

        • 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, we are able to optimise the layout of even the most complex sites using our SiteHunt® tool.

          SiteHunt® is an advanced analytical tool that examines a broad spectrum of wind and weather data to evaluate potential sites and establish which of them can provide the optimum conditions for your project.

          Vestas’ SiteHunt® puts at your disposal a proven and well-documented method of assessing the financial feasibility of a future wind power plant, lowering the cost of energy and maximising the return on your investment.
        • SiteDesign®

        • SiteDesign® optimizes the layout of your wind power plant through a sophisticated analysis of lifetime energy costs for each turbine. This is achieved by striking the most effective balance between a layout that maximises expected revenue, and one that reduces estimated operating and maintenance costs based upon Vestas’ deep knowledge into turbine components and operating data from global wind power plants. Put simply, SiteDesign® finds the balance between the estimated ratio of annual revenue to operating costs.

          Vestas’ SiteDesign® enables you to assess the production and operating costs of a complex wind energy site over the long term, and configure the optimal location and operational strategy of individual turbines accordingly.

          SiteDesign® is a crucial step in determining a project’s true potential, and provides a much firmer basis for investment decisions.
        • Electrical PreDesign

        • The complexity and specific requirements of grid connections vary considerably across the globe, making the optimal design of electrical components for your wind power plant essential.

          By identifying grid codes early in the project phase and simulating extreme operating conditions, Electrical PreDesign provides you with an ideal way to build a grid compliant, productive and highly profitable wind power plant. It allows customised collector network cabling, substation protection and reactive power compensation, which boost the cost efficiency of your business.
      • Turbine Options

      • An option is an extra feature that can be added to the turbine to suit a project’s specific needs. By adding options to the standard turbine, we can enhance the performance of the wind power project – and the business case certainty of the investment. Here are some of our options, although their availability will differ from country to country and from turbine to turbine.
          • Fire Suppression System

          • The Vestas turbines can be equipped with a system of smoke sensors as a first line of defense against the development of a fire.

            If one of the sensors is activated, the turbine will shut down. As a second line of defense, a temperature-activated Fire Suppression System can be optionally installed
            to automatically extinguish a fire.

            The Fire Suppression System’s layout targets the main risk areas and is optimized to fit the respective turbine types.

            The Fire Suppression System operates independently from the turbine and does not require a source of power.

            The Fire Suppression System is available for the following variants:
            • V112-3.3 MW™
            • V117-3.3 MW™
            • V126-3.3 MW™
          • Obstacle Collision Avoidance System (OCAS™)

          • Intelligent use of aviation lights
            Wind farm owners worldwide are required to conform to national regulations and recommendations for marking the wind turbines as air traffic obstacles.

            Legal requirements are region specific, but most solutions provide unnecessary, continuous lighting.

            OCAS™ is an innovative radar-based system that activates lights when an aircraft is operating in the immediate vicinity of the wind farm. This system addresses community concerns about light pollution and aviation concerns about safety by using highly-innovative and proprietary radar technology to detect approaching aircraft and immediately turns on the turbine aviation lights as a visual warning. This minimises the visual impact and opens up new commercial opportunities for sites with regulatory lighting restrictions – with potentially taller, higher-yielding turbine heights.

            OCAS™ is compatible with all Vestas turbine models and is suitable for almost any site onshore.
          • Shadow Detection System

          • Shadow flicker is the effect caused by the sun shining through the rotating blades of a turbine. Shadow flicker is one of the drawbacks of locating a wind farm near houses. In fact, shadow flicker can sometimes dictate whether planning permission is granted or not.

            You can avoid shadow flicker by equipping your turbines with the Vestas Shadow Detection System. The system is integrated with the control system of the turbine. If the unit registers shadow flicker beyond a certain threshold, it pauses the blades to avoid the strobing effect on nearby properties.

            Shadow controllers are uniquely configured for each turbine. They are programmed with the locations of neighbouring properties, as well as timetables indicating when shadow flicker must be avoided.

            The Vestas Shadow Detection System is compatible with all Vestas turbine models.
          • Increased Cut-In Wind Speed

          • Increased Cut-In Wind Speed is a system intended to prevent bat and bird blade strikes. The system controls the turbine operational cut-in wind speed based on predefined parameters around the turbine, which includes bat and bird migration patterns.

            Increased Cut-In Wind Speed is compatible with all Vestas turbine models.
          • Load and Power Modes

          • Wind sites are classified according to certain climactic characteristics (e.g. IEC IA, IEC IIA and IEC IIIA) but in the real world few sites fit these definitions perfectly. To extract the maximum potential wind power from a site, turbines must be configured for

            uneven wind conditions, turbulence levels, varied topography and air density.

            Vestas Load and Power Modes is an advanced wind sector management system. It adjusts turbine operation to extract the maximum potential energy from a given site according to the conditions forecasted during the siting process.

            Vestas Load and Power Modes is designed to increase the flexibility of individual turbines, exploit optimum power curves of each turbine within your site, maximise energy production and protect your return on investment (ROI).

            Load Modes is available for the following variants:
            V90-1.8/2.0 MW®, V90-3.0 MW®, V100-1.8/2.0 MW™ and V110-2.0 MW™.

            Power Modes is available for the following variants:
            V90-1.8/2.0 MW® and V100-1.8/2.0 MW™.

          • Condition Monitoring System

          • This condition monitoring system analyses how your wind turbine is performing via a series of sensors. You’ll know early on if something isn’t performing as expected, and you can service and maintain the wind turbine before a problem becomes crucial and causes prolonged down time. That way you’ll reduce unscheduled maintenance, improve availability, reduce repair costs, plan repair logistics more efficiently, and add value over the long-term.

            The Condition Monitoring System is is compatible with all Vestas turbine models.
          • Vestas De-icing System

          • Cold climates can often mean icy conditions. Ice build-up on your blades can have a negative impact on your power curve. The Vestas De-icing System offers full control and transparency through a tailored de-icing strategy. It is an active de-icing solution consisting of a power curve-based ice detection system and a hot air flow unit within the blades. The Vestas De-icing System is fully SCADA-integrated and can be triggered automatically or manually.

            The Vestas De-icing System is available for the V112-3.3 MW™
          • Aviation Markings

          • Aviation markings on the blades
            We offer contrasting colour stripes on blades, which are colour-coded by country, in order to make our turbines more visible for aircraft.

            Aviation lights
            Vestas offers a variety of aviation light solutions and related products to meet both international and national requirements for aviation marking of wind turbines.

            The aviation lights on both the nacelle and tower are visible 360° around the turbine. By adding visibility sensors, light intensity can be reduced in clear weather conditions. In case further reduction is needed the OCAS® radar based solution only activates the lights when an aircraft is operating in the immediate vicinity of the wind farm. This reduces the visual impact to a minimum.

            The aviation lights are available in different configuration with variable colours (red or white), flash rates and intensities. As a standard, two lights are located on the top of the nacelle and, when required, four lights around the same radius on the tower to ensure 360° visibility.
          • Copper Caps

          • The powerful energy discharge during lightning strikes can cause severe damage to blades, and in worst cases lead to structural destruction. Such damage results in expensive repairs or replacement and lost energy production while damaged blades are being repaired.

            Vestas' improved lightning protection will significantly reduce this risk of damage due to lightning strikes. The improvement consists of a copper cap for each blade tip. The copper cap is made of a thin plate, which makes the entire tip surface conductive and at the same time shields the tip to control the electrical field enhancement.

            Benefits
            • Eliminated or significantly reduced costs for blade replacement or maintenance
            • Reduced turbine downtime caused by damaged blades and replacement or repair
            • Reduced insurance costs

             
          • Yaw Power Back Up

          • The Yaw Power Backup system is a combination of sensors and software to control the turbine above standard cut-out speeds. It ensures that the nacelle and blade assembly can continue to yaw accurately in winds of up to 70m/s.

            The functionality consists of a special operational mode to ensure continuous yawing for turbines in areas where the risk of extreme wind events exist. Connection of an external power back up system to power the yaw system during grid outage is optional.

            Yaw Power Backup is available for the following turbine variants: V80-2.0 MW®, V90-1.8/2.0 MW® and V90-3.0 MW®.
        • Construction & Installation

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

          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.

          By choosing Vestas as your partner, you benefit from our vast knowledge and experience of different wind environments all over the world, together with our unrivalled project management skills, from design integration of every piece of the wind power plant, to high quality manufacturing and transport and construction expertise.
            • EPC - Engineering Procurement Construction

            • In EPC agreements we are responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the project. Depending on the scope of supply, an EPC project may include everything from the design specification, procurement and manufacture, to the complete installation and commissioning of the wind turbines and balance of the plant, such as road construction, crane hard standings, HV transformer and substation protection equipment, and the advanced SCADA system.
            • Scope of Supply

            • Effectively managing your project’s scope of supply is an important factor in minimising the risk. We have designed a number of flexible solutions for optimising scope of supply to meet every customer requirement.

              We generally offer the following scopes of supply:

              Supply and supervision: As well as supplying the turbines, we supervise their installation and commissioning on site.

              Supply and commission: We provide manpower to help get the turbines up and running. We may also provide transport if you need it.

              Supply and installation: In addition to the above, we procure and supervise the cranes for installing your wind turbines, provide the manpower to install and commission the turbines, and, if required, we can also transport them from the factory to the site.

               
          • Plant Optimisation

              • Safety & Environment

              • Working with wind turbines is not without risks. Heavy components in production, dizzying heights and unpredictable weather conditions during construction and service, all add up to a challenging work environment. But we refuse to accept that accidents are inevitable. Safety is paramount at Vestas, starting at the top with senior management. Individual employees also shoulder responsibility for their own well-being and the well-being of others. At a minimum we operate to the safety standards of OHSAS 18001 certification.

                In terms of environment, Vestas has set two ambitious targets for 2015 – to enable the highest possible MWh output per turbine weight and to use materials which have the lowest embedded greenhouse gas emissions, ensuring that our turbines are constructed from the most easily-accessible and renewable resources.
