The certification process was carried out on MV's prototype V164 located at Oesterild, Denmark.

Following this the company will begin manufacturing 32 of the turbines to be installed at the Burbo Bank Extension in the Irish Sea.

Speaking about the certification, MV chief technical officer (CTO) Torben Larsen said: "The awarding of the type certification for the V164-8.0 MW validates a record test and verification process which included testing of the blade and blade bearing on the Isle of Wight, UK, the drivetrain (gearbox, generator, main bearing) in Aarhus and the prototype in Oesterild, Denmark."

In February, Dong Energy selected MV as the preferred supplier for the first 330MW phase of the 660MW Walney Extension project.
