GE supplies 1.2 GW of wind turbines to North and South America

GE has secured 1.2 GW of contracts for its 1.6-100 wind turbine for wind farms in North and South America over the next two years.

By Kari Williamson

The 1.6-100 wind turbine is said to offer a 47% increase in swept area over previous megawatt-class models, resulting in a 19% increase in annual energy production at 7.5 m/sec wind speed.

The 750 additional wind turbines bring the total number of orders and commitments to US$2.7 billion and more than 2 GW since the turbine was launched in May this year.
