GE wind turbine towers reach 130 m

GE is introducing taller wind turbine towers for its onshore wind turbine product line, bringing hub heights to 130 m.

The taller towers will initially be offered for GE’s 2.5 MW series including the 2.75-103 wind turbine.

“We continuously strive to increase value for our customers. The taller tower which will also be available for our new 2.75-103 is the next step in our evolutionary product portfolio,” says Stephan Ritter, General Manager of GE Renewable Energy Europe.

“With taller towers, more sites become attractive wind farm locations. The increased height also offers more customer value through higher winds and a reduction in the impact of turbulence resulting in higher annual energy production.”

The wind turbine towers will have a hybrid pre-cast concrete and tubular steel design.

Initial, key markets will be Germany, Scandinavia, Poland, Romania and Canada.
