This is the most gigantic wind turbine project in the world. Designed by the Chinese Mingyang Smart Energy, this wind turbine with 140 meter long blades is planned for 2025.

If you think wind turbines are imposing, you haven’t seen anything yet. The one that the Chinese company Mingyang Smart Energy intends to build goes beyond anything one can imagine in terms of mattermatter of gigantismgigantism. Called MYSE 18.X-28X, this projectwind turbinewind turbine sera offshoreoffshore and the company expects it to have a rated power of 22 megawatts. The advantage of offshore is size. The extension of the blades delivers an operating surface and therefore much greater power when they rotate. An extra meter on a blade can result in tens of additional square meters of sweeping surface depending on the diameter. With that of this project, the scale of the rotary wing should break records with blades 140 meters long, that is to say when they rotate an operating surface, that is to say the surface of a circle of more than 66,000 m². This represents the equivalent of nearly 53 Olympic swimming pools. Obviously, to prevent these blades from touching the surface of the water, the pylon which porteporte must also be gigantic.
Higher than the Eiffel Tower
In terms of height, the whole will easily exceed that of the Eiffel Tower, culminating at 310 meters, at the tip of the blade. Ultimately, this wind turbine, whose installation is planned for 2025, will be the building equipped with parts mobilesmobiles the largest ever built. With such dimensions, the MYSE 18.X-28X Mingyang Smart Energy must be very robust. Despite its gigantism, according to its manufacturer, it is designed to withstand the most violent typhoons.
As for the other giants, Europe is not left out. Among the most colossal projects, we also find the Danish V236-15.0 MW VestasVestas, installed at its test site in Denmark. This offshore wind turbine prototype is practically as tall as the Eiffel Tower with its blades more than 115 meters long and a nacelle as large as an apartment. This wind turbine is currently being tested. It is designed to deliver a nominal power of 15 megawatts.
