Continuously innovating—with a focus
on quality and efficiency

Developed for all offshore conditions, the Haliade 150-6 MW turbine combines proven technology and innovation to provide high yield and uncompromising reliability that will lower the cost of offshore energy and create more efficient offshore turbines.

Thanks to its 150-meter diameter rotor (with blades stretching 73.50m), the Haliade 150-6MW offshore turbine can supply power to the equivalent of about 5,000 European homes. Currently, this 6 MW offshore wind turbine is powering tens of thousands of homes in Germany as well as the state of Rhode Island. Located on Block Island, GE constructed and installed the first offshore wind farm in the USA in 2016.

Key features from the 150-6 MW offshore wind turbine

The Haliade 150-6 MW is the new generation of direct-drive offshore wind turbine, delivering renewable energy to thousands of households at a competitive cost.

Pure Torque

The Pure Torque design of the 6 MW wind turbine protects the generator to ensure and improve its performance by diverting unwanted stresses from the wind safely to the turbine’s tower though the main frame. This allows the minimum air gap to be maintained between the generator rotor and stator all times, offering the highest efficiency.

This 12 MW ocean wind turbine can also generate 67 GWh gross AEP annually*, which is more than the most powerful machines on the market today, and twice as much as the Haliade 150-6MW. One Haliade-X 12 MW can generate enough clean power to supply 16,000 European households*.

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

Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Generator (PMG)

The Haliade 150-6 MW’s PMG is a more compact and lightweight design compared to earlier generation direct-drive systems, increasing reliability and offshore wind turbine availability, while reducing maintenance costs.

Enhanced efficiency

Strength and durability are increased with the 150m diameter rotor combined with 73.5m light blade.
