SINGAPORE--28 Feb--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

As part of its efforts to offer innovative solutions to meet customer needs, Vestas is introducing the V136-4.2 MW Extreme Climate wind turbine. This new variant of the powerful and proven 4 MW platform offers maximum energy production in low to medium wind speeds, while being designed to handle extreme weather conditions that have previously been challenging to exploit.

The V136-4.2 MW Extreme Climate is being introduced at the 2019 Japan Wind Expo to highlight the turbine's specific suitability for many project sites exposed to severe climate in Japan and Asia. The new variant is also applicable for other markets with similar conditions around the world, such as Southern China, Caribbean and UK, for both onshore and offshore sites.

The new variant is capable of withstanding extreme wind speeds of 53 m/s (exceeding IEC class I extreme wind speed), and extreme wind gusts of up to 74-78 m/s. The variant is also designed to withstand above-average frequency events and intensity of lightning strikes associated with Typhoons, such as those seen in Japan.

The V136-4.2 MW Extreme Climate is also highly suitable for a
