The most powerful wind generator (offshore)
The Haliade-x wind turbine manufactured by the company GE Renewable Energy is considered today as the wind-driven machine that generates the most power.
The Haliade-x is capable of generating 12MW of power, which said so, for People who are not very familiar with these terms, can tell you little, but if we say that it is the energy necessary to supply 16,000 homes, we can get used to the idea of the generation capacity of this titan from the wind. machine as one of the most complex on the planet and is the result of research and exhaustive testing of predecessor turbines.
Some amazing technical data of this machine are for example the length of each of its blades is 107 meters, the total diameter of rotation is 220 m and its height is 260 meters, which would allow it to compete with some of the best known skyscrapers. from New York .
The Haliadex is installed in the port of Rotterdam and belongs to the category of Offshore generators, that is to say, thought and designed to work within the seas.
They are the most robust generators and need greater reliability since they must withstand waves and streaks of wind up to
250 km / h.
