Husum: GE updates 2.5 MW wind turbines

GE has introduced new models designed to increase annual energy production (AEP) to its 2.5 MW wind turbine series.

The wind turbine modules, presented at Husum WindEnergy in Germany, include GE 2.75-100 – an upgrade of the existing 2.5-100 with changes to the electrical system increasing AEP; and GE 2.75-103 – a combination of the 2.75 upgrade and the 103 m rotor which uses GE’s 50.2 m blade design. The two wind turbine models are optimized for IEC TC II and III environments (wind speeds of ≤8.5 m/sec and ≤7.5 m/sec), respectively.

“These changes were made to increase customer value while maintaining the proven performance and reliability of our existing 2.5-megawatt wind turbine,” says Ricardo Cordoba, President of GE Energy Western Europe & North Africa.

“These latest additions to our wind turbine fleet significantly expand our ability to cover a broader range of wind conditions, yield the highest annual energy production in their class and build upon the success of GE’s 1.5-megawatt machine, the world’s most widely deployed wind turbine with 14,000 units now installed.”
