Follow the journey

Join us, as we follow the journey of our flagship offshore turbine - the V236-15.0 MW™. From the prototype turbine to commerial scale projects. 

Delivering on a promise

The V236-15.0 MW™ was the first ever 15 MW turbine to be introduced to the market in February 2021. The installation of the V236-15.0 MW™ prototype turbine was completed in December 2022 where the turbine also successfully produced its first kWh of power. 

Since the launch of the turbine, we have secured more than 10 GW of announced Preferred Supplier Agreements. Across the entire Vestas value chain, we are getting ready to deliver on commercial projects with serial production scheduled for 2024.

The prototype

The V236-15.0 MW™ prototype is installed at the Østerild National test centre for large wind turbines in Western Jutland, Denmark, where it is undergoing an extensive test and verification programme to ensure reliability before full type certification and serial production begins.

The prototype development and assembly work took place across Vestas’ R&D and production sites in Denmark. The blade moulds were developed at Vestas’ blade factory in Lem and the 115.5m long prototype blades were manufactured at Vestas’ offshore blade factory in Nakskov. The prototype nacelle was developed and assembled at the offshore nacelle factory in Lindø port of Odense.
