General Electric (GE) announced at Husum (Germany) the introduction of new more powerful models to its line of wind turbines of 2.5 megawatts.

Indeed, the new models are designed to increase annual energy production compared to existing 2.5-megawatt wind turbines. These new facilities include:

The GE model from 2.75 to 100 is more powerful than the current 2.5-100 wind without modification of the mechanical part. It has undergone some minor electrical system. The 2.75-100 GE Wind has an annual production of higher energy sites for wind class 2 IEC.

The GE model is a combination of 2.75-103 model rotor 2.75 and 103 meters using the properties of blade design type GE 50.2 with the latest improvements in aerodynamics, reduced noise emissions and a strong performance . The new wind is from 2.75 to 103 sites optimized for wind class III CIS.

“These changes have been undertaken to enhance customer value, while maintaining performance and proven reliability of our 2.5 megawatt wind current. These recent additions to our range of wind turbines increase significantly our ability to cover a wider range of wind conditions, making the annual energy production of the highest class and increase the success of GE’s 1.5 megawatt model The wind turbine used in the world with over 14,000 units installed to date.” said Ricardo Cordoba, president of GE Energy Western Europe and North Africa.

GE noted that the range of 2.5-megawatt GE wind turbines is available worldwide.

This range is used on two of the largest projects in the world: the wind farm Fantanele CEZ Romania completing the largest project of European land and the Shepherds Flat Wind Farm of Caithness Energy Company under construction in Oregon, largest wind farm ever built in the United States.
