EWEA 2015: GE adds lower-wind models to 3MW platform

US: GE revealed details and specifications of new low- and medium-wind speed turbines aimed at the European market at the EWEA 2015 event in Paris today (17 November).

GE launched a 3.2MW turbine with a 103-metre diameter rotor in 2013 targeted at UK, Irish and Turkish markets.

The 3.4MW models, with rotor diameters of 130 metres for IEC Class II, and 137 metres for IEC Class III conditions, add to the platform family launched at Husum in September with the 3.2-130 turbine.

"Our new 3MW machines are built to address the complexities of European wind conditions," said GE onshore wind CEO Anne McEntee.

"Working closely with our customers, this new family of smart, modular turbines will allow us to configure the right technology for a wide variety of site-specific wind conditions," she said.

The new models represent GE's most powerful turbines to date.

Five tower options are available, with hub heights ranging from 85 to 155 metres. All models feature the modular hardware and software analytics of GE's Digital Wind Farm.
