GE Renewable Energy has unveiled its brand-new 4.8–158 onshore wind turbine, 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. The latest turbine also features high tech blades, improved loads and controls, and taller, more cost-effective towers. The innovative features have been developed in close partnerships with LM Wind Power, Blade Dynamics and GE’s Global Research Center.
