It built and will test the nacelle at its facility in Lindø in central Denmark.
The nacelle will undergo mechanical testing, strict control testing of its controlling software, and a physical rotation of the drivetrain.
It will then be shipped to the Østerild test site in the north of the country for installation and testing as part of a whole turbine. Installation is due to start in the fourth quarter of 2022.
Vestas unveiled its V236-15.0MW turbine exclusively with Windpower Monthly in February 2021.
The turbine’s blades are being manufactured in Nakskov in southern Denmark and are set to undergo testing at Fraunhofer IWES’s facility in Bremerhaven, Germany.
