The order for 49 V164-8.0 MW turbines includes a five year full scope service contract to optimise power production. The V164-8.0 MW turbines – rated with a capacity of 8 MW – have been optimised for the Horns Rev 3 project, utilising a power mode to be able to deliver a maximum output of 8.3 MW.
The 406 MW Horns Rev 3 project will generate enough clean electricity to power over 400,000 Danish houses, contributing to Denmark’s and the EU’s goals to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 2020. ■
