Developed by Goldwind, the onshore GW 3MW(S) prototype features a rated capacity of up to 3.57 MW and a rotor diameter of 136 meters. “The installation of Goldwind’s 3S prototype serves as an important milestone for Goldwind Americas and its global strategy to commercialize Goldwind’s turbine technology in the U.S. and abroad,” notes David Sale, CEO of Goldwind Americas.The turbine was officially launched in October 2016 at the China Windpower Exhibition, and a prototype was grid-connected in China in January 2017. The Texas installation is the first prototype Goldwind has installed and tested outside of China. The U.S.-based prototype will be fully commissioned this month, when testing will also begin.Reinhard Sander, vice president of engineering and technology for Goldwind Americas, adds, “The newest model in Goldwind’s portfolio of turbines continues to push the technology envelope and define what is possible in the wind industry. This allows our customers to maximize project economics with a larger nameplate design at a greater hub height, while benefiting from the scalability and adaptability of the 3 MW-plus platform.”More: Goldwind Installs 199.2-Meter Wind Turbine In Texaslast_img read more
