Beginning its operational life in 2010 as a 3MW turbine with a rotor diameter of 112 metres, Vestas’ flagship onshore platform has grown steadily in rated power, rotor diameter and hub height.

This is the biggest and most powerful variant to date — a nameplate capacity of 4.2MW, 73.7-metre blades for a rotor diameter of 150 metres, and a tip height of 241 metres when deployed on Vestas’ 166-metre large diameter steel tower (LDST).

Vestas says orders for the new turbine have already been taken in markets that include Australia, Brazil, Finland and Sweden.
