A 225kW medium sized wind turbine suitable for powering larger farms, community projects and commercial properties.
The energy capture of the Vestas V27 turbine is exceptionally good across a wide range of wind speeds and comes installed on a 31m free-standing tower for maximum energy capture.
The Vestas V27 turbine is intended for a range of harsh conditions, especially exposed locations.The remaining design life of these machines is in excess of 20 years.
|Generator Rating||225kW @ 16 m/s|
|Rotor Speed||43 rpm nominal|
|Cut-in Wind Speed||3.5 m/s|
|Survival wind speed||56 m/s|
|Number of blades||3|
|Control system||Pitch controlled|
At a particular location, the wind speed will vary about an annual mean value. The expected energy yields for the Vestas V27 at various annual wind speeds (AMWS) is shown below:
|AMWS m/s||Annual MWh||Daily kWh|
Note: The annual electricity consumption of a medium size home is in the region of 4- 6MWh or 11-16 kWh per day. At 6 m/s wind speed the Vestas V27 can provide the annual energy needs for 100 homes.
