GG Renewable Energy Haliade-X prototype in Rotterdam, Netherlands, has started operating at 14 MW.
In this new phase, GE Renewable Energy will be the first industry player to build a turbine on this power plant, the maker said.
Haliade-X 14 megawatts In January 2021, the version of Halide-X received 13 megawatts. GE Renewable Energy Group has now officially launched certification measurements on Halide-X 14 MW.
A turbine can generate up to 74 gigabytes of total annual power output, saving up to 52,000 metric tons of C02, which is equal to the output of 11,000 vehicles a year.
Vincent Sche Lings, Technology Officer, GW Renewable Power from Coastal Winds, “We are pleased to announce that Halide-X Prototype is the first turbine in the industry to operate successfully at 14 MW. In November 2019, when we first launched our 12-megawatt model, we made a big leap in the industry. Over the past two years, we have learned a lot about the performance and upgrades of our Halide-X platform, which today has enabled us to increase the Halide-X platform to 14 MW.
The ability to generate more than one turbine means that small wind turbines need to be installed on each wind turbine. In addition to less capital costs, this simplifies operations and maintenance by improving the accessibility and availability of renewable energy for customers and consumers around the world.
Haliade-X will start operations at Dogger Bank C, a wind farm more than 130 km from the north-east coast of England.
Completed with Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, it will be the largest beach wind farm in the world. GE Renewable Power will provide the 14-megawatt 87 units to State Bank X Halide-X.
