Siemens Gamesa reveals world’s largest wind turbine

Siemens Gamesa has unveiled its new 14MW SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbine, the largest capacity wind turbine in the world.

The turbine, which beats out competitor GE Renewable Energy’s 12MW Haliade X turbine, features 108-metre-long blades, on a 222-meter diameter rotor, and capacity can be boosted to 15MW using proprietary technology.

One turbine produces enough electricity to power approximately 18,000 average European households every year, according to the company, meaning that 30 turbines would be able to cover the annual electricity consumption of the city closest to its international headquarters in Bilbao, Spain.

Markus Tacke, Siemens Gamesa CEO, said: “We’ve gone bigger for the better. Safely and sustainably providing clean energy for our customers and society-at-large is at the core of all we do. The new SG 14-222 DD is a global product which allows all of us take giant steps towards protecting and preserving our planet.”

“We ourselves became carbon neutral in late 2019 and are on track towards meeting our long-term ambition of net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050. Our installed fleet of over 100 GW both offshore and onshore abates more than 260 million tons of CO2 emissions annually”, he added.
