GE's 2 MW-127 turbine selected for 2.9GW of projects in North America

Published 08 February 2018

GE Renewable Energy has secured commitments for 2.9GW of its variably rated 2.2 MW to 2.5 MW onshore wind turbine with a 127-meter rotor in North America.

Some of the largest commitments are for projects with Invenergy, NextEra Energy Resources, Lincoln Clean Energy, and Avangrid Renewables.

Featuring the best-in-class capacity factor, the 2MW-127 demonstrates the next step in turbine technology and efficiency. It also brings a significant improvement in Annual Energy Production (AEP) within the 2MW range, reducing the cost of energy for customers with medium to low wind speed sites.

GE's Onshore Wind Business president & CEO Pete McCabe said: "We're delighted by the positive response from our customers to the GE 2MW-127 and look forward to improving their project economics as we install this leading technology at wind farms across North America."

The 2MW-127 builds on GE's 2MW platform that has over 5.5GW installed and operating today. It features the same proven performance and reliability with an even greater capacity factor while also increasing the AEP of GE's product offerings.

Today, GE's 2MW platform wind turbines come digitally-equipped and ready to utilize GE's Predix core applications including its Asset Performance Management (APM), Cybersecurity, and Business Optimization (BO) solutions. The digital suite of apps enables improved business outcomes, including the lifecycle extension of the customers' wind farms and the improvement of overall farm economics through data driven insights and actions.
