GE launches 3.2-103 brilliant wind turbine

By Editor


GE has announced the launch of its 3.2-103 brilliant wind turbine, producing a 5 percent increase in energy output compared to GE’s current model.

The 3.2-103 generates more power for medium-to-high wind speed sites, GE said. 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 103-meter rotor diameter and hub-height flexibility make it an excellent fit for tip-height constrained sites. The wind turbine is specifically designed for the tip-height constrained sites in the U.K. and Ireland.

The technology also drives higher wind farm output especially in the windy and low shear areas typically present in Turkey. The integrated energy storage makes it a valuable solution to help improve the grid integration challenges.


The 3.2-103 utilizes the power of the Industrial Internet to help manage the variability of wind for smooth, predictable power.

By analyzing tens of thousands of data points every second, the 3.2-103 integrates energy storage and advanced forecasting algorithms while communicating seamlessly with neighboring turbines, service technicians and operators.

The wind turbine features three battery-enabled software applications that provide enhanced wind power availability. Wind developers and operators can select the application or combination of applications that best suits individual site needs.

Ramp Control enables the grid to efficiently absorb wind power. Predictable Power makes short-term wind power made predictable over periods of 15 to 60 minutes. Frequency Regulation energy storage responds to supply and demand changes with precision.

This advanced technology drives higher wind farm output, services productivity and creates new revenue streams for customers.

The new 3.2-103 is engineered for IEC Wind Class II standards and is available for 50-Hz applications.
