Proven performance, reliability, and availability

GE’s stringent engineering procedures result in a 1 MW wind turbine manufactured for high performance, reliability and availability. The use of the rotor from the proven GE 2 MW Wind Turbine Platform and selected component modifications provide increased annual production with the same reliable performance as the 1.5 MW wind turbine.

Built from the maturity of its predecessors, this wind turbine platform ensures increased turbine capacity factor while increasing AEP and application space.

Key features from the 1 MW platform

Any onshore wind turbine model from GE’s 1 MW Platform is a three-blade, upwind, horizontal axis wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 82.5 to 103 meters. The wind turbine rotor and nacelle for the 1 MW platform are mounted on top of a tubular steel tower providing hub heights ranging from 65 to 96 meters. The machine uses active yaw control to keep the rotor pointed into the wind. The wind turbine can operate at a variable speed and uses a doubly fed asynchronous generator with a partial power conversion system.
