The world's longest blade

    Meet a record-breaker: LM 88.4 P

    the longest, most advanced, wind turbine blade in the world.

    The LM 88.4 P dwarves all its predecessors. There is no other blade like it.

    Powering an 8 megawatt wind turbine – the rotor is the ‘motor’ for one of the largest mechanical structures on earth. It has been designed and manufactured with sufficient quality and reliability to withstand 25 years of life offshore, in the harshest weather conditions and roughest seas.

    One set, of three blades, is capable of powering around 10,000 homes – that’s a whole town – lit up by a single wind turbine. Ten will power a city.

    Breaking the world record for the longest wind turbine blade, LM Wind Power demonstrates once again our unique technical know-how and manufacturing expertise, enabling today’s offshore wind turbines to capture more energy from the wind, reduce the cost of energy, and push the industry’s boundaries in the battle against global climate change. And the LM 88.4 P is just one more step advancing the compelling case for clean energy from the wind – we can go further still.

    The LM 88.4 P is a product of game-changing talent, teamwork and technology. Alongside our suppliers and customers, LM Wind Power is living our vision – Together, we capture the wind to power a cleaner world.

    How big is 88.4 meters?

    The London Eye looks small next to this massive rotor. In fact, the swept area of a wind turbine with the LM 88.4 P is large enough to cover 3 soccer fields, or the entire Colosseum!
