Wind turbine blade repair capabilities
reduces your blade O&M costs by up to ~25%. Sabre is a one stop inspection solution that is applicable for your entire fleet—regardless of wind turbine model or manufacturer and can be completed with your blades still rotating, which maintains output and saves you money and increases the wind turbine’s lifecycle. The SABRE camera system is mounted to the bed of a truck and taken to the base of your wind turbine. The camera system takes images of your turbine blades, with the turbine still running, that provide real-time view of the subsurface of the blade. SABRE, when combined with GE’s digital capabilities, provides advanced imaging.
The Cypress onshore platform, which includes 4 MW and 5 MW wind turbines, is setting new standards for onshore wind energy production and costs.
With shared drivetrain and electrical system architecture across all machines, GE's 3 MW onshore wind platform is adaptable to a full spectrum of wind regimes.
Featuring significant improvement in AEP, GE’s 2 MW Platform of onshore wind turbines has more than 5.5 GW installed and operating today.
