GE Renewable Energy has started operating the prototype of its Haliade-X turbine in the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands at 14MW.

The Haliade-X 14MW is an uprated version of the Haliade-X 13MW, which had received its type certification in January 2021. The OEM now has also started certification measurements on the larger model.

“The Haliade-X prototype is the first turbine in the industry to successfully run at 14MW,” said Vincent Schellings, chief technology officer at GE Renewable Energy Offshore Wind.
