Product Information

Greater rotor for greater benefit

Maximizing your benefit means maximizing your turbines’ output. The latest model of our offshore Direct Drive platform, the SG 8.0-167 DD, allows for higher energy yields at all wind speeds. By integrating proven concepts together with an increased rotor size, the 8 MW turbine equals lower risk and greater AEP.


Confident in every part's strength

In our ongoing effort to ensure that innovation addresses your needs, any opportunity for improvement that we identify is explored for its maximum benefit. The SG 8.0-167 DD is one example of this. Designed to IEC S (IB) standards, it can be deployed in the most challenging offshore conditions. The 167 m rotor features the new aerodynamic 81.5-meter-long B81 blades, which enable up to 20 % higher annual energy production than the 7 MW direct drive turbine. Despite being one of the lightest blades in its class, it still maintains the strength needed for a 25-year design lifetime.


Our Offshore Direct Drive wind turbines feature a proven and reliable technology with a long-term track record, as the first prototype was installed in 2011. Utilizing existing elements of our production model creates key advantages. We standardize processes by leveraging our fully developed supply chain while re-using both current and future production facilities. This lets us manufacture high volumes with low risk – over 1,000 units will be produced at the beginning of 2020.
