In-depth feature on the “mightiest” wind turbine ever built

    In their September issue, Recharge News published an in-depth feature on the Adwen AD 8-180 wind turbine, with LM 88.4 P blades, presenting it as one of the leading offshore machines in the industry.

    “The AD 8-180 will be the mightiest ever built. The 8MW turbine’s record-setting 88.4-metre blades will sweep a circle wider than the Colosseum in Rome, its giant drivetrain will be able to handle steel-splitting torque better than any industrial machine on earth — and then transform it into enough power for 10,000 homes.” – Recharge News, September 2016.

    In June, LM Wind Power and Adwen announced the world’s longest blade – LM 88.4 P – at Global Offshore Wind in Manchester. The September Recharge News article features an elaborate section about the 'cutting-edge' blades, based on interviews by VP Engineering, Roel Schuring and VP Offshore, Alexis Crama conducted at the trade show.

    “Offshore wind is a massive opportunity for more renewable energy, it’s industrially proven and we are working hard to get it to grid parity less than ten years from now. A big part of this is about more powerful turbines and a big part of that is about larger rotors,” Alexis said. “The most important thing is not that we make the largest blade; it is that we make blades that are technologically proven, that will capture the most energy possible and that can be made reliably and with the utmost focus on quality.”

    In 2017, @LMWindPower expanded its Plant in Quebec. 🇨🇦 #cleantech. @invest_canada Just last month it won three awards at the Quebec Wind Energy Gala. They had to hire 300 new people to keep up with the 400% increase in demand. https://t.co/P3qKdeI2ao https://t.co/isQoGRmKOm
