Today, Vestas has launched its newest and most powerful offshore wind turbine, V164-9.5 MW. The turbine is a further development of the world's most efficient wind turbine with 80-meter long wings. It is already the owner of the world record for production of power in 24 hours.

According to Vestas, just one of the new offshore wind turbines can produce enough power to keep more than 8,300 households going.

“As a leader in the offshore wind industry, we are committed to lowering costs through innovative turbine technologies. The launch of our V164-9.5 MW turbines is an statement of this leadership and the ingenuity of our engineers and engineers," says Jens Tommerup, CEO of MHI Vestas in a press release.

The increased power in the new turbine is generated through minimal design changes.
"With only minimal design changes including a redesigned gearbox and upgrades of the cooling system, this turbine continues the legacy of the proven V164 platform and is now available to all MHI Vestas customers," says Torben Hvid Larsen, CTO at MHI Vestas.

The turbine has as its predecessor giant dimensions. The maximum height is 187 meters and the wings cover an area larger than the famous London Eye.
The new turbine has already put the record in production, as it produced 216 MW in a 24 hour period in December 2016.
