Introducing The 2 MW Platform
GE’s 2 MW Platform of onshore wind turbines has more than 5.5 GW installed and operating today.
Building on that success, GE offers a 127-meter rotor option for 2.2-2.5 MW rated wind turbines. Featuring the best-in-class capacity factor and a significant improvement in Annual Energy Production (AEP) within the 2 MW range, the 2 MW-127 demonstrates the next step in turbine technology and efficiency, reducing the cost of energy for customers with low and medium wind speed sites.
2 MW PLATFORM OVERVIEW
GE’s 2 MW Platform is a three-blade, upwind, horizontal axis wind turbine with a rotor diameter of either 116 or 127-meters.
The turbine rotor and nacelle are mounted on top of a tubular steel tower offered at multiple heights.
To keep the blades pointed into the wind, the 2 MW-116 uses a passive yaw control system, and the 2 MW-127 uses an active yaw control system.
GE’s 2 MW Platform operates at a variable speed and uses a doubly fed asynchronous generator with a partial power converter system.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Features and accessories are available to provide optimal operations wherever the 2 MW wind turbine is installed. Should you wish to know more about GE’s 2MW platform features and options, contact GE today for more information.
