Video here of Vestas Wind Systems AS (Aarhus, Denmark) installing its first V164-8.0 MW wind turbine at the Danish National Test Centre for Large Wind Turbines in Østerild in January 2014. The turbine, the largest in the world, has a 140m/459-ft tower, a tip height of 220m/722 ft, blades of 80m/262 ft and a swept area of more than 21,000m2/226,042 ft2, an area roughly the size of four American football fields.
