10MW turbines with 193m rotor diameter.  Awesome.

What turbines will be used in the farms that achieved the record low bids in the most recent UK auctions? Anyone know when they are due to become operational?

The 2019 round is due to start on 29th May, with the operationally date being 2023-2024 for a strick price of 56 per MWh and 2024-2025  for a strick price of 53 per MWh.

As the bids have not been entered yet it's not possible to know the turbine size, but with 10MW now being deployed 12MW and 14MW units are likely.
