The 118.05 MWh of output on 2 November surpassed the previous record of 107.82 MWh, which had been set by manufacturer’s 4.5MW machine.
“This milestone demonstrates the turbine’s tremendous reliability and its ability to withstand extreme wind conditions for more than 24 hours in a row without suffering any incident whatsoever,” said a spokesman for Gamesa.
It added that the record “further confirms the suitability of the site selected for its offshore conditions, enabling the capture of all the data needed for type certification.”
The G128-5.0MW machine kicked off operations in July. Since then it has generated more than 2 GWh of electricity for the local grid. It is the first offshore turbine installed in Spain.
