GE will be rolling out a new wind turbine for a wind farm in Michigan. This company news release says GE will supply 59 of the 1.7-100 brilliant wind turbine, the world’s most efficient wind turbine in its class, for the NextEra Energy Resources, LLC’s wind farm in the thumb region of Michigan.
The 1.7-100 machine is the second brilliant wind turbine in GE’s portfolio. GE’s brilliant wind turbines harness the power of the Industrial Internet to analyze tens of thousands of data points every second, helping to manage wind’s variability and provide smooth, predictable power. In addition to the brilliant features, GE’s new 1.7-100 meter wind turbine advances its 1.6-100 wind turbine series by utilizing electrical system upgrades to allow higher energy productions.
“GE is a trusted partner and a leader in wind turbine technology and innovation. Wind turbine innovation is key to the continued growth of the wind industry and we look forward to installing this new 1.7-megawatt technology machine,” said Armando Pimentel, president and CEO of NextEra Energy Resources.
The turbine’s blades will measure 100 meters in height. GE says the turbines are its highest capacity ones and the flagship products in its portfolio.
