Designed for the diverse site conditions in the US
AEP increase SG 2.7-129 vs. SWT-2.625-120
The SG 2.7-129 wind turbine is the latest Siemens Gamesa onshore turbine developed to meet the medium- to low-wind site and market conditions of the American market. To deliver the lowest Cost of Energy and maximize performance across various sites in the US, the SG 2.7-129 is designed with the higher capacity factor for our customers demand. This new model enhances our wind turbine catalog by demonstrating our ability to offer flexible solutions for every context.
Technological Highlights
The nacelle is specifically designed to make the moving parts of the geared turbine easier to reach, helping to lower service costs and reduce work time. The fully enclosed asynchronous generator features a squirrel-cage rotor without slip rings, to extract the maximum energy yield.
The development of IntegralBlade® technology enables each reinforced fiberglass blade to be cast in one piece. This process eliminates weaker areas at glue joints and delivers blades of optimum quality, strength and reliability.
Turbine sensors continuously transmit data to the Siemens Gamesa Diagnostic Center, enabling the early detection of anomalies and preventing potential failures. By analyzing vibration patterns we can optimize your service plan and anticipate repairs before serious damage occurs.
