Vestas V27 wind turbine


  • Towers are 30m but 40m also available on request at extra cost

  • Total prices range from €97k EUR to 115,k EUR per unit depending on age

  • Terms: Buyer will log a purchase request with us and we will source a suitable turbine for you within 90 days – ExWorks owners site

The expected energy yields for the Vestas V27 at various annual wind speeds (AMWS) is shown below:

AMWS m/s Annual MWh Daily kWh
4 0.128 351
5 0.255 699
6 0.411 1126
7 0.575 1575
8 0.734 2011
9 0.878 2405

The annual electricity consumption of a medium size home is in the region of 4-6 MWh or 11-16 kWh per day. At 6 m/s wind speed the Vestas V27 can provide the average annual energy needs for 100 homes.


Please note that original configuration is 50hz grid frequency and would need to be converted to operate on a 60hz grid at an additional cost

Reconditioning Schedule Wind Turbines


a. Tower:

i. Tower is inspected and where necessary repairs will be made inside and outside tower;

1. Inspection of security lines and connections,

2. Inspection of outside steps, correct bended steps.

3. Inspection of tower connection box, add new main twist cable. Replace tower connection box where necessary.

b. Nacelle:

i. Chassis;

1. Physical inspection of chassis and bolt connections, remove oxidation where necessary.

2. Physical inspection of subchassis, apply new layer of primer and paint against corrosion.

3. Optical and Physical inspection of rubber mountings of subchassis for anti-vibrating system

4. Attach a new layer of paint on the hood of the nacelle if necessary

ii. Yawing system;

1. Physical and optical inspection of main cogwheel on wear, where necessary smoothed teeth to assure less wear during operation

2. Opening of complete main cogwheel for cleaning and inspection of bearing, clean and inject new grease, complete new separator for ball bearings installed including dust protection.

3. Complete overhaul of yawing gearbox, all bearings replace, flexible connection inspection and adjustment.

4. Inspection and new insulation (thermical injection under high pressure) add to the yawing engine

5. Fill with new gearbox oil as prescribed by manufacturer.

6. Inspect and check for proper operation of the cable twist system.

iii. Generator;

1. Complete overhauling of generator, new bearings, windings cleaning and insulation attached (thermical injection under high pressure)

2. Check for resistance of windings and check for proper operation

3. Flexible connection of generator inspect and renew.

4. Greased bearings as prescribed by manufacturer.

iv. Main gearbox;

1. Completely overhaul gearbox, place new bearings where necessary.
