Onshore Wind Turbine GE Cypress 5MW-158

The Cypress platform, which also includes the 4.8-158 MW wind turbine, will be powered by a groundbreaking two-piece blade design, which allows the wind turbine blades to be manufactured at even longer lengths and improving logistics to offer more siting options. Longer wind turbine blades improve AEP and help drive down Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE), and the proprietary design will allow these larger onshore wind turbines to be installed in locations that were previously inaccessible. This feature of the 5 MW onshore platform significantly drives down logistical costs by enabling blade assembly onsite and reduces the costs for permitting equipment and road work required for transporting longer blades. Equally important, the Cypress 5 MW wind turbine features blade tips that offer customers greater flexibility to address site wind conditions and requirements. The high-tech carbon blades were developed through the longtime partnership between GE’s Onshore Wind business, GE’s Global Research Center and GE’s LM Wind Power, taking advantage of the research, design, and large-scale manufacturing expertise of these teams to bring the Cypress wind turbine blades from concept to a tested and proven reality.
