GE begins research on 10-15MW wind turbine: US electronics giant General Electric (GE) has begun research on a t...

Keith Longtin, wind technology leader of GE Global Research, said, ‘With the industry’s desire for higher megawatt machines to maximise clean wind power opportunities in the US and around the globe, new technologies will be needed to support larger scale wind platforms. The key challenge will be delivering solutions that achieve the right scale and cost. Applying more than 30-plus years of experience with superconducting magnets for MRI systems in healthcare, we’re developing an innovative new generator technology that will deliver more power while at the same time helping to reduce the cost of wind power.’
