The Vestas V80 is a workhorse for wind farm projects located in moderate to high wind zones. The V80 is specifically designed to manage the blades to handle these large wind stresses. Vestas has installed over 2,700 of the V80s all around the world. An excellent safety and performance record, the V80 is a first choice for many wind farm installations.
The V80 is rated at 2.0 Megawatts and are suitable for both onshore and offshore applications. The V80 is equiped with automatic control on the variability of blade pitch which is critical for high wind locations. The ability of the wind turbine to respond to prevailing wind direction and speed makes the V80 an ideal choice.
