GE has introduced new members to its family of 2.5 MW wind turbines. All of the new models are designed to increase annual energy production (AEP) over the existing 2.5 MW wind turbine, according to the company.
GE's 2.75-100 is an uprate of the existing 2.5-100 wind turbine, with no mechanical component changes and only minor changes to the electrical system. GE says the 2.75-100 machine will provide greater AEP in IEC TC III environments.
GE's 2.75-103 is a combination of the 2.75 uprate and the 103-meter rotor, which utilizes the company's 50.2-meter proprietary blade design. In addition, the new 2.75-103 wind turbine is optimized for IEC TC III.
