GE Renewable Energy has secured commitments in North America for 2.9 GW of its variably rated 2.2 MW to 2.5 MW onshore wind turbine with a 127-meter rotor.
Some of the largest commitments are for projects with Invenergy, Lincoln Clean Energy and Avangrid Renewables, the company says.
Pete McCabe, president and CEO of GE’s onshore wind business, says, “We’re delighted by the positive response from our customers to the GE 2 MW-127 and look forward to improving their project economics as we install this leading technology at wind farms across North America.”
The 2 MW-127 builds on GE’s 2 MW platform, which has over 5.5 GW installed and operating today.
Today, GE’s 2 MW platform wind turbines come digitally equipped with GE’s Predix core applications, including its asset performance management, cybersecurity and business optimization solutions. The digital suite of apps enables improved business outcomes, including the lifecycle extension of customers’ wind farms and the improvement of overall farm economics through data-driven insights and actions.
