GE Renewable Energy unveiled its plans last month to build the world’s largest, most powerful offshore wind turbine, known as the Haliade-X. The huge rig will be tested and developed over the course of next five years at the UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult research centre.

 

The Haliade-X will feature a 12-megawatt direct drive generator and will produce 45% more energy than any other offshore wind turbine currently available. The plans include generating 67 GWh annually. This is enough to power 16,000 European households.
