Due to popular demand the V120-2.0/2.2 turbine will aid China’s wind industry, especially with low and ultra-low wind conditions where it will offer up to 13% higher annual energy production.
It will be manufactured locally in Tianjin, and will feature upgrades from Vestas’ previous 2MW platform.
This will include a 120m rotor that has been built using new carbon technology, and a swept area increase of 19% compared to the earlier V100-2.0MW model, using increasing in weight by 8%.

“To meet customer demand and support the continued development of China’s wind power industry, Vestas is offering its most advanced products to China.”
