Haliade-X wind turbine

The world’s most powerful wind turbine with a 12 MW capacity

Identification

The Haliade-X solves the challenge of high clean electricity cost with a larger wind turbine that requires less installation on a single wind turbine for the same wind farm total capacity.

Today, most wind power produced is dependent on subsidies to reach a competitive price. The Haliade-X Solution solves this challenge by providing a high power, efficient wind turbine. A larger wind turbine enables a lower electricity price since it lowers the number of cabling, foundations material and installation while increasing the electricity yield, thanks to a larger rotor relative to the size of the generators. The wind turbine’s capacity factor is increased up to 12 MW, enabling a lower cost of electricity. By using new technologies, the Haliade-X is able to capture the advantage of scaling up wind turbines and can outperform the capacity of competitors by up to 50%.

The environmental benefits

  • One Haliade-X 12 MW turbine can generate up to 67 GWh of gross annual energy production, providing enough clean energy to power 16,000 European households
  • Up to 50% greater capacity than competitors
03.

The Financial benefits

  • Lower operations and installation cost because 26% less turbines have to be installed for the same wind farm total capacity
  • Lower LCOE than other wind turbine as the size of the turbine enabling higher capacity factor.
