Gamesa prototype wind turbine produces 104.6 MWh in one day

Gamesa's G10X-4.5 MW prototype wind turbine, installed in Alaiz, Navarra, Spain, has set an energy output record for its type, generating electricity for 23.24 equivalent hours at nominal capacity (98.26% of the day), for a total of 104.6 MWh.

The Alaiz wind turbine is the second G10X-4.5 MW prototype Gamesa has erected in Spain with the aim of achieving the highest possible levels of availability, energy efficiency and network codes for this turbine system.

The wind turbine's light weight, despite its 120 m tower and 62.5 m blades, makes it as easy to handle as a 2 MW wind turbine, Gamesa says.
