GE has introduced its 3.2-103 brilliant wind turbine for the U.K., Ireland and Turkey. Building on GE's 2.5 MW fleet, the 3.2-103 generates more power for medium to high wind speed sites, the company says.

According to GE, three battery-enabled software applications integrate with the wind turbine to provide enhanced wind power availability. With hub height flexibility of 70 to 98 meters, the 3.2-103 helps wind farm developers generate higher annual energy production in tip-height constrained sites, the company adds. The new 3.2-103 is engineered for IEC Wind Class II standards and is available for 50-Hz applications.

“Our 3.2-103 is the next evolution in our European product platform,” says Cliff Harris, general manager of Europe for GE’s renewable energy business. “Engineered specifically for U.K. and Ireland permit constraints, the 103-meter rotor diameter and hub-height flexibility make it an excellent fit for tip-height constrained sites. Additionally, this advanced technology drives higher wind farm output especially in windy and low shear areas typically present in Turkey, and the integrated energy storage makes it a valuable solution to help improve the grid-integration challenges.”
