MingYang eyes 2022 rollout for world’s largest hybrid drive turbine

August 23, 2021

Chinese wind turbine manufacturer MingYang Smart Energy has launched the MySE 16.0-242, said to be the world’s largest Hybrid Drive wind turbine with a nameplate capacity of 16 MW.

The MySE 16.0-242, which was recently certified by DNV and China General Certification Center (CGC) for design, is scheduled for full prototype rollout in 2022, to be followed by prototype installation in the first half of 2023 and commercial production in the first half of 2024, MingYang said.

With the industry’s largest rotor and highest nominal rating, a single MySE 16.0-242 turbine can generate 80,000 MWh of electricity every year, enough to power more than 20,000 households, MingYang said.

In comparison, it produces 45 per cent more energy than MingYang’s previous turbine model, the MySE 11.0-203.
