GE’s first 2.75-103 wind turbine has been commissioned at the Energy Research Center of the Netherlands wind farm in Wieringermeer, the Netherlands.

The new turbine is based on GE’s 50.2m proprietary blade design, which increases energy production by more than 9% at 7.5 m/s over the 2.5-100 machine.

GE renewable energy general manager Stephan Ritter said, “Following our announcement last year to introduce the new 2.75-103 wind turbine, we have our first unit fully commissioned and ready for delivery this summer.”

Featuring electrical system uprates, the new wind turbine can provide energy for about 2,000 German homes.

The turbine is fitted with a 103m rotor, optimised for IEC Sb and DIBT WZ2 standards and is useful for 50 and 60Hz applications with 75, 85 and 98m hub heights.
