The new wind turbine features electrical system uprates and the company’s 50.2m proprietary blade design that offers an annual energy production increase of more than nine percent at 7.5m/s over the 2.5-100 machine.

One 2.75MW wind turbine is anticipated to provide energy for approximately 2,000 German homes.

GE said the new turbine is available for 50Hz and 60Hz applications with 75, 85 and 98-meter hub heights.

GE general manager Stephan Ritter said that the design of new wind turbine is built on the core design of the 2.5MW series with minor electrical changes.
