GE Renewable Energy has introduced the 6.0-164 version of its Cypress onshore wind turbine platform, making it the company’s most powerful onshore wind turbine available.

The model is expected to increase annual energy production by up to 11% compared to the 5.3-158 design. The company says the upgrade features a two-piece blade that improves logistics and drives costs down. The 6.0-164 is expected to be in the field by 2022. 

Since its introduction, GE Renewable Energy has received more than 3.4 GW of orders for its Cypress turbines in European countries including Germany, Austria, Sweden, and Lithuania.
