GE introduced the latest in its line of brilliant wind turbines with the 2.2-107 and announced an order of 32 turbines from Omega Energia in the Piaui region of Brazil. This is the first order for GE’s 2.2-107 wind turbine.
The 2.2-107 machine is the latest in GE’s line of wind turbines, which harness the power of the Industrial Internet to analyze tens of thousands of data points every second, helping to manage wind’s variability and provide smooth, predictable power. The turbine is an evolution of GE’s 1.5-megawatt series of turbines and is well suited for Brazil’s wind regime. As part of the contract, GE will provide the operations and maintenance on the 32 turbines for 10 years.
“The 2.2-107 wind turbine provides a 12 percent increase in capacity factor and a 33 percent increase in power output over GE’s current offering while continuing to provide the reliability and efficiency of GE’s wind turbines.”, said Jean-Claude Robert, general manager of Latin America for GE’s renewable energy business.
