GE Targets Low-to-Medium Wind Speed With Newest 4.8-MW Wind Turbine

September 12, 2017

By Renewable Energy World Editors

         
GE Renewable Energy this week unveiled its new 4.8–158 onshore wind turbine, the company’s largest high efficiency turbine to date.

The wind turbine is equipped with a 158-meter rotor and a range of tip heights up to 240 meters. The combination of a larger rotor and tall towers enables the turbine to take advantage of higher wind speeds and produce more energy, said the company.

According to GE the turbine’s 77-meter high-tech carbon blades, improved loads and controls, and taller, more cost-effective towers were developed thanks to close partnerships with LM Wind Power, Blade Dynamics and GE’s Global Research Center. The blades also feature one of the industry’s smallest Bolt Circle Diameters, keeping manufacturing and logistical costs to a minimum, said GE.

The company said that it took input from more than 30 customers around the world and also leveraged the intelligence gathered from across the company’s 30,000+ fleet of wind turbines to create this new generation asset.

Pete McCabe, President & CEO of GE’s Onshore Wind Business said, “The 4.8–158 design…is well suited for low-to-medium wind speed regions worldwide — examples include Germany, Turkey and Australia — as well as for mechanisms like auctions, as countries around the world are putting an increased emphasis on lowering the cost of energy.”
