• Launches Advanced 1.7-103 Low-Wind Speed Turbine in India;
• Developed and Engineered in India for India’s Wind Conditions;
• GE’s First ‘for India’ Wind Turbine to Help Meet India’s Unmet Energy Needs.

For wind farm operators, the turbine’s large 103-meter rotor will help deliver high-efficiency output and attractive project economics. The 1.7-103 also provides a 30 percent increase in annual energy production compared to its predecessor, the 1.6-82.5 wind turbine.

GE continues to work towards developing advanced technology solutions that improve the quality of life in India. The launch of the 1.7-103 is another key step in strengthening its deep commitment to India. A 100-megawatt wind farm powered by 1.7-103 turbines can generate the electricity required to fulfill the needs of 413,000 Indian homes per year and offset carbon emissions of 291,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

India is rapidly increasing its power generation using renewable energy. Renewables now constitute more than 5 percent of India’s energy mix by production and 12 percent by installed capacity.

The cost of wind power in particular is now close to grid parity, and advancement in technology is making its generation more predictable.

This turbine uses GE’s evolutionary technology platform and is based on the success of the 22,000 GE wind turbines installed globally.

“The launch of our new 1.7-103 wind turbine is a testament to GE’s commitment to energizing India and catering to India’s low wind speed environment. Our latest offering underscores the company’s effort to provide localized solutions to India,” said Banmali Agrawala, president and CEO, GE South Asia. “As GE’s latest wind turbine for India’s low wind speed, the 1.7-103 offers performance and reliability that exceeds industry standards. With the 1.7-103, GE has invested in powering India in a cleaner way.”
