Vestas expands 2 MW platform with two new turbine variants

The company has presented the new 2MW rotors for the wind energy sector Vestas, one of the wind energy sector leaders, has presented its last offer for the industry. The new productos larger 116 meter and 120 meter rotors, the V116-2.0 MW and V120-2.0 MW, are particularly well-suited for the U.S., India and China. The new variants build on Vestas’ 2 MW platform, delivering increased swept area and annual energy production while keeping the existing 2 MW nacelle and hub design. Through the 2 MW platform’s tried and tested design foundation, the V116-2.0 MW and V120-2.0 MW thus employ proven technology to improve power production. Designed to deliver even more stable energy production, the new turbines offer a steeper power curve, delivering higher power output in medium, low, and ultra-low wind conditions. Based on structural shell technology...

ORMAZABAL SUPPLIED TO OVER 3 GW WIND POWER INSTALLATIONS WORLDWIDE IN 2015

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was held in Paris during November 30th to December 12th 2015, which later announced the targets for the greenhouse gas emissions by aiming to control the climate change within the 2 oC trajectory.The wind energy has been strategically applied in many countries as one of the most effective ways to allow a more sustainable energy system. By the end of 2015, the global accumulated wind power installation has reached 430 GW, with 63 GW being newly installed during 2015. The global forecast in wind of new installation from 2016 to 2020 is expected to be around 55 GW each year (Source: GWEC).2015 has been a successful year for global wind energy sector, which also was a remarkable year for Ormazabal. We have supplied medium voltage solutions to over 3 GW...
