Gamesa introduces new turbine

Gamesa has announced the launch of a new wind turbine: the G114-2.0 MW Class IIIA, designed to achieve maximum returns from low wind sites.

The new technology was unveiled at key sector event EWEA 2012 Copenhagen (Denmark).

The G114 turbine, with unit capacity of 2.0 MW, features a a 114-metre diameter new rotor with a swept area of 10,207 m² that increases a 38-percent in swept area plus a 20-per cent increase in annual energy output compared with the G97-2.0 MW turbine.

The new blade, spanning 55.5 metres with aerodynamic features developed using state-of-the-art technologies, also enables maximum energy production with reduced noise output levels. The machine offers a range of tower height options (from 93m to 140m or higher, depending on the target location), though we expect the 120m to be the most popular.

In a press release Gamesa says that the new turbine promises to be a benchmark in the industry thanks to its low power density, the lowest on the market for its segment, and will help the company meet one of its targets for significantly.
