222-meter diameter turbine revealed

222 meter diameter rotors: Larger rotors in tower-supported wind turbines - what might be the implications of such a huge diameter for AWE? That is 728 feet - more than 1/8 of a mile. Pretty darn big! Whew!
Siemens Gamesa has launched the SG 14-222 DD offshore direct-drive wind turbine.
With a 14 MW capacity, reaching up to 15 MW using the company’s Power Boost function, a 222-meter diameter rotor, 108-meter long blades and a 39,000 m2 swept area, the newest Siemens Gamesa wind turbine has pushed the limits of offshore technology.
