What do you think of @GErenewables new 3.2MW turbine?

The 3.2-103 is based on the company's 2.5MW platform and is designed to overcome restrictions in tip heights in the UK and Ireland while also increasing output, with the model available in hub heights between 70 and 98 metres. Turkey is named as a target market due to the prevalence of windy, low-shear sites in the country, which GE said will suit the available hub heights. As part of the company's "Brilliant" series, the turbine uses the industrial internet to allow the turbines to communicate with each other and a central server to help to account for wind variability, with the aim of maximising the output of smooth, predictable power. The turbine also features integrated energy storage which can enable the turbine to respond to supply and demand changes. GE's general manager of Europe for renewable energy Cliff Harris commented: "Engineered specifically for UK and Irela...
