Gamesa Unveils New G132-5.0 MW Turbine at Global Offshore Wind 2014

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 (UK) on 11 and 12 June.

Gamesa Unveils New G132-5.0 MW Turbine at Global Offshore Wind 2014

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, with a blade length of 64.5m and a rotor diameter of 132m, generates 3% more power than the G128-5.0 MW. It is designed with redundant modules, guaranteeing reliable performance and maximising 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.
