General Electric GE Haliade-X, the most powerful giant wind turbine in the world: 14 MW!

by Christophe » 05/01/21, 09:27

Nacelle at 260 m, rotor diameter of 214 m !! Max height: 367 m! It is 50 m more than the Eiffel Tower! Welcome to the world of giant wind turbines!

With its capacity of 14 MW and a capacity factor of 64%, the Haliade-X is the latest from the American manufacturer, which plans to install it in the United Kingdom and at two other offshore sites in the United States. .

In November 2020, she broke a record of 312 MWh produced in a single day, which means a single rotation can power a UK household for two days! Or 8,3 seconds of operation for the electricity consumption of a 50 square meter house in France.

These machines, intended to be installed at sea, where the winds are the most powerful, have little to do with the first generations of offshore wind turbines in the 1990s, whose capacities did not exceed a few hundred kilowatts.
