A Siemens-Gamesa offshore wind turbine prototype broke the energy record of 359 MWh in 24 hours.

One of the world’s largest wind turbines produced significant renewable energy, providing a whopping 359 megawatt hours over a 24
-hour period.

In a tweet, the Spanish-German wind turbine company Siemens Gamesa, which produces wind turbines for onshore and offshore services, noted that their SG 1-222 DD broke the record for the power produced by a single turbine in one day. According to the company, the turbine produced enough energy to drive a medium-sized electric car for 1.12 million miles (1.8 million km).

The Siemens Gamesa SG 14-222 DD is one of the world’s largest wind turbines, matching the 14MW rated capacity of GE’s largest Haliade-X turbines, just behind the giant 15MW Vestas units and the largest offshore turbines in the world. MingYang, the 16th MW champion Three massive 108-meter (35-foot) blades form a 39,000-square-foot (20,000-square-foot) sweep circle on the SG 14-222 DD. And although it is rated at 1MW, it offers a “power boost” feature that can take power output up to 15MW. 


According to Peter Esmann, senior product manager at Siemens Gamesa, this power-boosting feature monitors site-specific conditions and remains active about 98% of the time, shutting down only in stormy winds or excessive turbulence, reducing turbine power. back to 14MW. Although that prototype is intended for offshore use, it was built on land in sterild, Denmark in late 2021, where it reached its production record. 
enough energy for around 18,000 households per year.


What makes the power even more special is that the giant wind turbine reached the milestone just ten months after generating and delivering the first electricity in STERILD, Denmark.

The prototype was returned to the center in November 2021, and it began producing electricity a month later. The SG 14-222 DD is a 14megawatt (MW) offshore wind turbine with a capacity of up to 15 MW and a “Power Boost” function. It has a 728-foot (222-meter) diameter rotor, 35-foot-long (108-meter) B108 wings cast in one reusable piece, and a swept area of 19,792 square feet (39,000 square meters).. SG 14-222 DD can produce enough energy for about 18,000 households per year. 


“With each new generation of our offshore direct drive turbine technology—which uses fewer moving parts than adapted turbines—component improvements have enabled better efficiency while maintaining reliability. With the launch of the SG 1-222 DD, we can shorten our time to standardized processes and a fully developed supply chain. Serial production is planned for 202, “the company writes.”
