The new LM Wind Power blades will now enable Hitachi to offer their 5.2MW wind turbine with a rotor size of 136 meters. The 66.5 meter blades have been tested on a wind turbine of the Kashima Port Fukashiba Wind Power Station in east Japan since October last year.
LM Wind Power CEO, Marc de Jong said: “We are very pleased to support Hitachi, a leader in the development of wind power in Japan, in this offshore development of a new rotor for their 5.2MW platform. We look forward to seeing the 66.5 meter blades generate clean, renewable energy in lower wind sites along the coast of Japan’s main island.”
The 66.5 meter blades were produced in LM Wind Power’s blade manufacturing facility in Jiangyin, China.
