Gamesa is showcasing its new 5.0 MW turbine, the G132-5.0 MW, at the 2014 Global Offshore Wind trade fair, one of the sector’s hallmark events, in Glasgow on June 11 and 12.
The new G132-5.0 MW turbine leverages the know-how and experience acquired during the exhaustive validation of the 5.0 MW platform, which culminated recently with the receipt of type certification for the G128-5.0 MW from independent expert DNV-GL as well as tapping its proven and tested technology.
The G132-5.0 MW wind turbine is designed with redundant modules, guaranteeing reliable performance and maximizing energy output, thereby streamlining the cost of energy. The turbine also stands out for its light weight, which reduces the cost of related wind farm civil engineering work. The G132-50 MW offshore turbine is capable of generating enough energy to supply 5,000 households a year.
