Haliade-X offshore wind turbine

The world’s most powerful offshore wind turbine in operation

Driving efficiency and decreasing the cost of offshore wind energy

Introducing Haliade-X, the most powerful offshore wind turbine in the world.  The Haliade-X is also the most efficient ocean-based wind platform, with a leading capacity factor of 60-64%. GE’s investment in the Haliade-X will help make offshore wind a more cost-effective and competitive source of clean energy.

Key features from the Haliade-X offshore wind turbine

The Haliade-X offshore turbine features a 14 MW, 13 MW or 12 MW capacity, 220-meter rotor, a 107-meter blade, and digital capabilities.

The Haliade-X  is not only the most powerful wind turbine in the world but also features a 60-64% capacity factor  above industry standard. Capacity factor compares how much energy was generated against the maximum that could have been produced at continuous full power operation during a specific period of time. Each incremental point in capacity factor represents around $7 million in revenue for our customers over the life of a windfarm.

Power meets efficiency

The combination of a bigger rotor, longer blades and higher capacity factor makes Haliade-X less sensitive to wind speed variations, increasing predictability and the ability to generate more power at low wind speeds. The Haliade-X can capture more Annual Energy Production (AEP) than any other offshore wind turbine even at low wind conditions.

One Haliade-X 14 MW turbine can generate up to 74 GWh of gross annual energy production, saving up to 52,000 metric tons of CO2, which is the equivalent of the emissions generated by 11,000 vehicles* in one year.

*According to wind conditions on a typical German North Sea site.

Bottom line impact

The Haliade-X can bring higher profitability to customers with significant savings across offshore wind turbine manufacturing, installation cycle times, service and repairs.
While the Haliade-X wind turbine is well-suited for high-to-medium wind speed environments, its larger capacity can produce energy even at lower wind speeds, increasing profits and dramatically lowering the levelized cost of energy.

With fewer machines and offshore wind turbine foundations to install, in addition to reduced cycle times and simplified operation, the Haliade-X generates robust savings on overall project cost (CAPEX Balance of Plant**) over the life of a windfarm.

**Balance of Plant (BOP) is the costs attributed to one unit over its lifetime – O&M, operating expenses.

Digital tools

Digital tools are currently being developed exclusively for the offshore environment with an operations approach, that will help customers perform remote diagnostics, improve time management (less time at sea) and optimize operations.
