Vestas Wind Systems, the largest wind turbines manufacturer is going to test the world’s longest turbine blade of all times.
They’re going to do it soon, on the Island of Wight in the UK where they will build a research and development center that will play along with an existing Vestas plant which produced turbine blades since 2000.
Though they revealed plans (pdf link), the company failed to mention how long the blades are going to be. Things are clear though. It’s going to be longer than 44 meters which is what Vesta V-90 measures.
The new facility will start producing wind turbine blades starting with 2010.
