Representatives from GE and Max Bögl Wiesner GmbH announced the official start of installation of the first GE 2.5-120 wind turbine in Schnaittenbach, a town in Bavaria, Germany.
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.
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.
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.
