In 2019, the Haliade-X 12 MW prototype in Rotterdam raised the bar for wind energy (see top image). It set a world record for generating enough energy in one day to power 30,000 Dutch households. The prototype is performing so well that the machines are now rated even higher — at 13 MW. GE has received the first commercial order for 190 of the machines. They will power the first two phases of the Dogger Bank wind farm in the North Sea — expected to be the world’s largest when completed. And the recently announced third phase of Dogger Bank will feature Haliade-X 14 MW. The New York Times also wrote about the machine on the cover of its business section on Jan. 1. Here’s how the Haliade-X is making waves.
