GE brings 3.2-MW Brilliant wind turbine to 3 European markets
Oct 31, 2013 - US conglomerate General Electric Co (NYSE:GE), or GE, said yesterday it had launched sales of its 3.2-103 Brilliant wind turbines with battery storage in the UK, Ireland and Turkey.
The machines, built on GE’s 2.5-MW platform, are capable of producing more electricity at medium-to-high wind speed locations. The 3.2-103 model analyses tens of thousands of data points per second, combines energy storage and advanced forecasting algorithms and communicating well with neighboring turbines, service technicians and operators.
The 3.2-103 Brilliant wind turbines were “engineered specifically for UK and Ireland permit constraints” and are at the same time suitable for windy and low shear areas such as in Turkey, said Cliff Harris, the head of GE’s renewable energy unit in Europe.
The machines were designed to meet IEC Wind Class II standards and are available for 50-Hz applications. They come with applications, which can be selected by wind project developers and operators, such as ramp control, frequency regulation and predictable power.
