• GE’s 2.5-120 Wind Turbine Generates Power to Help Meet the Energy Needs of Approximately 2,000 German Homes
• Investor is Max Bögl Wiesner Gmbh
• The 2.5-120’s Advanced Control Technology and a Specially Designed Hybrid Tower Configuration Make It Advantageous for Low Wind Locations

Two months after the completion of installation, the first GE (NYSE: GE) 2.5-120 wind turbine has been put into commercial operation in Schnaittenbach, a town in Bavaria, Germany. The 2.5-120 produces approximately 8 megawatts a year, which is equivalent to the required average energy needs of about 2,000 German households. The investor and operator of this project is Max Bögl Wiesner GmbH.

By choosing GE’s new 2.5-120 turbine, Max Bögl Wiesner GmbH made a decision for today’s most efficient inland wind turbine worldwide. 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 turbine’s advanced controls, paired with the 120-meter rotor and a specially engineered hybrid tower with a hub height of 139 meters, allow for a more efficient energy output. 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 each one for enhanced performance. The 2.5-120 analyzes tens of thousands of data points every second to drive higher output and improve services productivity, ultimately helping to manage wind’s variability.
