LM Wind Power has completed installation and testing of a 66.5 m wind turbine blade ordered by Hitachi for offshore application.
LM Wind Power and Hitachi commenced installation of the 66.5 m blade in 2016 with the aim of optimising Hitachi’s 5.2 MW platform to operate effectively, also in lower wind sites.
The new LM blades will enable Hitachi to offer its 5.2 MW turbine with a rotor size of 136 m. The 66.5 m blades have been tested on a turbine of the Kashima Port Fukashiba Wind Power Station in east Japan since October last year.
“We are very pleased to support Hitachi, a leader in the development of wind power in Japan, in this offshore development of a new rotor for their 5.2 MW platform,” says LM Wind Power CEO, Marc de Jong. “We look forward to seeing the 66.5 m blades generate clean, renewable energy in lower wind sites along the coast of Japan’s main island.”
The blades were produced in LM’s blade manufacturing facility in Jiangyin, China.
