GE reveals its largest onshore wind turbine

GE Renewable Energy unveiled its new 4.8–158 onshore wind turbine, the company’s largest high-efficiency onshore turbine to date.

Pete McCabe, president and ceo of GE’s onshore wind business said, “The 4.8–158 design is an important next step in turbine technology and efficiency, and we’re excited to introduce this turbine at this moment in time. It is well suited for low to medium wind speed regions worldwide—examples include Germany, Turkey and Australia—as well as for mechanisms like auctions, as countries around the world are putting an increased emphasis on lowering the cost of energy.”

The new 4.8 MW turbine is equipped with a 158 m rotor and a range of tip heights up to 240 m.
