Key features from the 2 MW platform

GE’s 2 MW wind turbine platform is a three-blade, upwind, horizontal axis wind turbine with a rotor diameter of either 116, 127 or 132 meters, operates at a variable speed, and uses a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) with a partial power converter system.

Drivetrain and electrical system architecture

The 2 MW onshore platform drivetrain and electrical system architecture provide improved performance along with greater wind turbine energy production. Other critical components have been scaled from existing platforms to meet the specific technical requirements of this evolutionary turbine.

Improved business outcomes through digital

GE’s 2 MW platform wind turbines come equipped and ready to utilize GE’s Edge core applications, including its Asset Performance Management (APM), Cybersecurity, and Business Optimization (BO) solutions. The digital suite of apps enables improved business outcomes, including lifecycle extension of customers’ windfarms and the improvement of overall farm economics

Proven performance

GE’s 2 MW turbine platform has a proven record of providing excellent reliability, and 98+% availability for our customers, with more than 10 GW installed and operating today.
