The prototype of Gamesa’s new G114-2.0 MW turbine, recently installed in Alaiz (Navarre, Spain), has started to generate power.
Installation of the turbine finished in early December 2013, triggering the start of the intensive process of validating and certifying the new turbine. The company expects to obtain type certification during the first quarter of 2014. With a rotor spanning 114 metres, the new turbine’s sweep area is 38% greater than that of the G97-2.0 MW, while it produces 20% more energy a year. The G114-2.0 MW wind turbine is part of the company’s 2.0-2.5 MW platform.
