On October 19th, according to a report from Chaodian Lab, the wind turbine giant Siemens Gamesa recently set a new power generation record. The SG14-222 DD offshore wind turbine prototype manufactured by it has set a single output of 359 megawatts within 24 hours. time world record.

1 MWh is equivalent to 1,000 kWh, and 359 MWh is 359,000 kWh, enough for a mid-sized electric car like the Tesla Model 3 to travel about 1.12 million miles (1.8 million kilometers).
The SG14-222 DD was actually designed for operation at sea (offshore wind), but this trial operation was conducted on land. Because wind conditions there are worse than at sea, Siemens Gamesa expects higher power production when the turbine is used at sea.
Gamesa’s SG 14-222 DD is an ultra-large offshore wind turbine, released in May 2020, using permanent magnet direct drive technology. transport. According to Siemens Gamesa, the SG14-222 DD is currently the largest wind turbine in the world. The recyclable rotor blades are 108 meters long and the rotor diameter is 222 meters. The nacelle is mounted on a 160-meter tower. The SG 14-222 DD has a wind turbine capacity of up to 14.7 MW, or 15 MW when using the Power Boost function, providing energy to approximately 18,000 homes per year.
Production of the SG 14-222 DD is scheduled to start in 2024, and Siemens is already working on a successor, the SG 14-236 DD, which will have a rotor diameter of 236 meters and will be even 5% more powerful than the SG14-222 DD.
IT House learned that Siemens Gamesa was born in 2017, when German industrial giant Siemens and Spanish manufacturer Gamesa completed the merger and integration of wind power business. Headquartered in Zamoudio, Spain, and 67% owned by Siemens Energy, Siemens Gamesa is the only company in the world with a global presence in the entire wind energy sector (onshore, offshore and in services).
