1.85-87 Wind Turbine

GE’s 1.85-87MW Wind Turbine

GE’s 1.85-87 wind turbine is designed for Class IIs winds, and offers an 11% increase in swept area and an extra 230 kW output at rated wind speed compared to the 1.6-82.5 turbine. The increase in blade swept area results in a 10% increase in Annual Energy Production (AEP) at 8.5 m/s. 

GE’s proprietary Advanced Loads Control allows siting of the 1.85-87 wind turbine in Class IIs wind regimes, combining drive train sensors and capabilities of the Mark* Vie turbine controller to individually pitch blades and improve loads handling performance.

GE’s stringent design procedures result in a turbine engineered for high performance and availability with the same reliable performance as the rest of GE’s 1-2 MW fleet.
