• GE’s First Commercially Installed 2.5-120 Wind Turbine Would Generate Power to Help Meet the Energy Needs of Approximately of 2,000 German Homes;
• Investor: Max Bögl Wiesner GmbH;
• The 2.5-120’s Advanced Control Technology and New Tower Configuration Make it Advantageous for Low-Wind Locations.

“We are pleased that, thanks to GE’s new turbine, we are able to use the most efficient inland wind turbine worldwide for our project. We are going to harvest plenty of wind in the future and wind is readily available if we do not use it, we are missing a huge opportunity,” said Michael Bögl and Ludwig Wiesner, CEOs of Max Bögl Wiesner GmbH.

This is the first commercial use of the 2.5-120 turbine worldwide and it is expected to start operation in late October. Its anticipated production rate of 8 million kilowatt-hours is equivalent to the required average energy needs of approximately 2,000 German households.

“We are pleased that Max Bögl Wiesner GmbH selected the 2.5-120 precisely because we had engineered it for locations such as Schnaittenbach,” said Stephan Reimelt, CEO of GE Energy Germany. “GE’s goal was to facilitate the generation of wind energy in densely wooded regions with low-wind intensity such as the Oberpfalz (Upper Palatinate area). The 2.5-120 meets these requirements and additionally contributes to the successful implementation of the ‘Energiewende’ on a regional level.”

The 2.5-120 is GE’s first “brilliant” wind turbine to utilize the power of the Industrial Internet. The Industrial Internet uses data analysis to connect machines and equip them with intelligence, helping to position them for enhanced performance.

“The turbine’s advanced controls, paired with the 120-meter rotor and a custom-built tower with a hub height of 139 meters, allow for a more efficient energy output,” said Andreas von Bobart, general manager, GE Wind Energy Germany. “The 2.5-120 analyses tens of thousands of data points every second to drive higher output and improve service productivity, ultimately helping to manage wind’s variability.”

Michael Bögl, CEO of Max Bögl Wienser GmbH; Stephan Reimelt, CEO of GE Energy Germany; Andreas von Bobart, general manager of GE Wind Energy Germany and Ludwig Wiesner, CEO of Max Bögl Wiesner GmbH, attended the event.
