Vestas’ V236-15.0 MW prototype wind turbine generates the first kWh

Vestas has finalised the installation of the V236-15.0 MW prototype turbine at Denmark’s Østerild National Test Center for Large Wind Turbines in Western Jutland. The prototype has successfully produced its first kWh of power and will now undergo extensive testing and verification to ensure reliability before full type certification and serial production begin.
“This is a great step forward in our ambition to accelerate the green energy transition and it is a major milestone for Vestas and our partners. Colleagues across Vestas have worked very hard and collaborated closely to ensure the rapid progress in developing and assembling the V236-15.0 MW prototype, and this achievement is a testament to the dedicated work of the many Vestas employees involved. With this wind turbine we set new standards for technological innovation, industrialisation and scale across renewable energy to create a sustainable offshore wind industry”, says Anders Nielsen, Vestas Chief Technology Officer.
Vestas’ R&D and production sites in Denmark were used for prototype development and assembly. Vestas’ blade factory in Lem created the blade moulds, and Vestas’ offshore blade factory in Nakskov produced the 115.5 m long prototype blades. The offshore nacelle factory in Odense’s Lindø port developed and assembled the prototype nacelle. Testing of the generator, converter, and grid system integration has already begun at the LORC test facility in Denmark.
