GE’s 'Wind PowerUp' services promise to boost power output

Customized software-enabled platform to be installed at five GE customer wind farms in Germany and Romania.

GE this week announced that European wind farm operators ENERTRAG AG and Monsson Group have selected GE’s Wind PowerUp* services for wind farms in Germany and Romania.

PowerUp services, a GE Predictivity* solution,1 allows wind farm operators to increase annual energy production by up to 5 per cent, taking into account environmental conditions.2 PowerUp services will be installed on seven GE 2.3 MW and thirteen 2.5MW wind turbines at Enertrag’s wind farms Kleisthöhe and Grünberg Trampe and eight GE 2.5-100 MW at Monsson Group’s wind farms Miraesa II, Galbiori, & Silistea II.

“GE's PowerUp software will allow us to increase power output within the Green Certificates framework”, said Sebastian Enache, business development manager of Monsson Group.

Executed through a cooperative, phased approach that takes a holistic view of the assets, system and network, PowerUp services enable a wind farm to generate more from the available wind, Andy Holt, general manager of projects & services at GE’s renewable energy business, explained.


1. GE Predictivity solutions tap into the power of the Industrial Internet. PowerUp services are part of GE’s brilliant wind platform which utilizes the Industrial Internet to analyze tens of thousands of data points on a wind farm every second, driving higher output and tailoring the wind turbine to its wind site conditions.

2. A 5 per cent increase in energy output translates to up to 20 percent increase in profit per turbine.
