The G10X-4.5 MW wind turbine, installed by Gamesa near Alaiz (Navarra, Spain), on 1 July set a new record for energy output by a wind turbine in Spain. The turbine generated electricity for a total of 107.82 MWh (98.26% of the day at nominal capacity and 100% of availability).
Yesterday the turbine's performance broke the previous record of 104.6 MWh, which was set by the same machine on 12 March.
Gamesa has erected in Spain three G10X-4.5 MW prototypes in Jaulin and Cabezo Negro (Zaragoza) and in Alaiz.
Gamesa's G10X-4.5 MW offers 4.5 MW of nominal capacity, which makes it the most powerful turbine on the land-based wind energy market.
Its most appealing features include its light weight, despite its size - a 120-metre tower and blades more than 62.5 metres in length -; its competitiveness in cost of energy (CoE) terms; and its ease of transport and assembly. The latter makes the turbine as easy to handle as a 2.0-MW turbine, thanks to the technology behind its segmented blade - unique in the world - and to innovations such as the FlexiFit, a crane which couples to the nacelle and serves as a tool for assembling and servicing the machine.
The annual output of a single G10X-4.5 MW is enough to:
