Vestas V29 – 225kW wind turbine

The Vestas V29 is a slightly larger bladed 225kW medium sized wind turbine, suitable for sites with lower wind speeds.

PERFORMANCE

The energy capture of the Vestas V29 turbine is exceptionally good across a wide range of wind speeds, and comes installed on a 31 metre free-standing tower for maximum energy capture.

RELIABILITY

The Vestas V29 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.
