GE says its WindBOOST control software has been installed at Zorlu Enerji Group's Gokcedag Wind Farm in Turkey.

The project, located in Osmaniye, Turkey, uses 31 of GE's 2.5 MW turbines. According to GE, WindBOOST makes it possible for GE's 2.5 MW wind turbines to increase their power curve to 2.75 MW, which will boost the wind farm's annual energy production by up to 4%.

Depending on the wind speed and other site atmospheric conditions, the WindBOOST control automatically activates to increase the energy produced by each unit, GE says. Alternatively, WindBOOST can be turned on and off remotely, providing flexibility to ramp up power production.

"By upgrading GE 2.5 MW wind turbines with WindBOOST software, Zorlu Enerji gets the benefit of increased energy production without additional equipment,” says Andy Holt, general manager of wind services for GE’s renewable energy business. “The 31 wind turbines now operate at the same power curve as 2.75 MW units."
