GE has announced that European wind farm operators ENERTRAG AG and Monsson Group have selected GE's Wind PowerUp for wind farms in Germany and Romania.
The company says PowerUp services, a GE Predictivity solution, allows wind farm operators to increase annual energy production by up to 5%, taking into account environmental conditions. A 5% boost in energy output translates to an up-to-20% increase in profit per turbine, according to GE.
PowerUp services will be installed on seven GE 2.3-MW and 13 2.5-MW wind turbines at Enertrag's wind farms Kleisthohe and Grunberg Trampe and eight GE 2.5-100 MW turbines at Monsson Group's wind farms Miraesa II, Galbiori, and Silistea II.
Andy Holt, general manager of projects and services at GE's renewable energy business, says, "PowerUp services are ideal for customers such as ENERTRAG and Monsson Group, to provide even more power from their wind farms to benefit the communities in Germany and Romania."
