GE Launches Digital Wind Farm Technology in India

GE launched its Digital Wind Farm technology in India; this wind energy ecosystem leverages big data and analytics, pairing a turbine with a digital infrastructure. GE says the solution enhances production, reduces costs, and boosts availability and productivity over the life of the wind farm, reports Power Engineering.

GE installed the latest version of its wind turbine hardware, the 2.3–116 machine, which comes with enhanced control technology and safety features; a new 94 meter tower height; and has the largest 116-meter diameter rotor in the country, offering approximately 30 percent more gross Annual Energy Production over its predecessor, the 1.7-103.

“As India advances toward its clean energy goals, GE Renewable Energy has been actively partnering in the country’s progress. We launched the 1.7-103 wind turbine, designed and assembled in India, two years ago. Its successor, the 2.3-116, is ideal for India’s low wind speed conditions. Additionally, our Digital Wind Farm technology enables integration of higher amounts of wind energy crucial to support 24 X 7 ‘Power For All’ mission of the government. We are hopeful that by effectively harnessing the power of technology, renewable energy will continue becoming a mainstream source of power in India”, said Anne McEntee, President & CEO of GE’s Onshore Wind business.  

“India is pursuing an aggressive strategy to build renewable energy capacities to ensure a sustainable energy mix and meet future demand for electricity”, said Banmali Agrawala, President and CEO, GE South Asia. “It therefore becomes imperative to adopt smart energy systems to integrate increasing amount of renewable power.”
