Onshore Wind Turbine GE 3MW-137

Download Catalog

Extending the capability of the Digital Wind Farm to our 3 MW machines, GE’s powerful and efficient 3.2–3.8 platform is adaptable to a full spectrum of wind regimes. The platform includes the 3.6-137, our highest performing turbine for Class III winds. GE has employed selected legacy components with proven performance for the 3 MW platform, helping to ensure the consistent performance and reliability for which GE wind turbines are known. Turbine models within the 3 MW platform share drivetrain and electrical system architecture, with both systems, scaled and upgraded for improved performance and greater energy production, as compared to previous models. GE’s 3 MW platform machines are three-blade, upwind, horizontal axis wind turbines with a rotor diameter ranging from 130 to 137 meters. The turbine rotor and nacelle are mounted on top of a tubular steel tower, with a range of hub height options that includes 85-, 110-, 131.4-, 134- and 164.5-meter variants. The turbines use active yaw control to keep the blades pointed into the wind. The 3 MW platform is engineered to operate at variable speeds and uses a doubly fed asynchronous generator with a partial power converter system.

  • Engineered to meet or exceed the 2.5 MW platform’s historic high availability
