Brazil debut for GE 2.2-107

GE says it has won an order from Omega Energia in Brazil for 32 of its new 2.2-107 wind turbines, and will provide operations and maintenance under a 10-year contract.

This is the first order for GE’s 2.2-107 wind turbine, which was selected by Omega Energia in the A-5 Brazil energy auction in December 2013.

“The 2.2-107 wind turbine provides a 12% increase in capacity factor and a 33% increase in power output over GE's current offering, while continuing to provide the reliability and efficiency of GE’s wind turbines,” says Jean-Claude Robert, general manager of Latin America for GE’s renewable energy business.

“Today we have 1GW of wind projects installed in Brazil and 400MW under construction.”

The 2.2-107 machine is the latest in GE’s line of "brilliant" wind turbines.
