Gamesa showcases at Awea its new G114-2.5 MW wind turbine: more energy production with the lowest CoE
The new turbine, based on the 2.0 MW platform proven technology, reaches the highest efficiency and profitability in medium wind sites -----G114-2.5 MW produces 29% more energy than Gamesa's G97-2.0 MW turbine while lowering the cost of energy by 10%
Gamesa, a global technology leader in the wind industry, showcases its new wind turbine with 2.5 MW of unitary power: the G114-2.5 MW at the American Wind Energy Association's Windpower 2013 conference and exhibition (5-8 May in Chicago).
The new turbine is based on the tested and validated technology of Gamesa's 2.0 MW platform, with more than 15,000 megawatts installed in 28 countries around the world, becoming one of the most reliable wind turbine on the market.
The bigger rotor and the higher unitary power of Gamesa's G114-2.5 MW turbine, designed for use in Class II winds, reaches the highest efficiency and profitability, by optimizing the cost of energy in the 2.0-3.0 MW product segment. The G114-2.5 MW model offers 29 percent more energy production than Gamesa's G97-2.0 MW turbine while lowering the cost of energy 10 percent.
Based on the same technological concepts as the Gamesa 2.0 MW platform, the new turbine comes with a new 2.5 MW generator/transformer but shares many of its systems with the G114-2.0 MW, enabling the company to streamline costs. The G114-2.5 MW will complement and exist side by side the Class II G97-2.0 MW, as well as the rest of Gamesa's 2.0 MW product range, the market benchmark thanks to its excellent capacity performance and the high returns offered. The G114-2.5 MW turbine will be ready for delivery in 2014.
Having rounded out its product range, Gamesa's 2.0-2.5 MW platform is the most versatile on the market: five different rotor options (G80/G90-2.0 MW class I, G97-2.0 MW class II, G114-2.0 MW class III and the G114-2.5 MW class II), tower heights ranging from 78m to 140m and environmental alternatives designed to enable installation at even the most complex sites.
