4.1 – 113 Wind turbine
GE’s 4.1-113 combines a proven design with GE’s unparalleled reliable technology to deliver the only built for purpose offshore wind turbine. The 4.1-113 is designed specifically for the offshore environment, with reliability and availability as the primary drivers. This machine includes direct-drive technology, built-in redundancy in the generator and converter, and in-situ repair capabilities, providing unique value to offshore wind farm operators.
- High reliability and annual energy production with direct-drive design (fewer moving parts): Eliminates downtime due to gearbox faults, maintenance, and exchanges
- Technology Leader: Industry’s most mature offshore direct-drive technology. In operation since 2005 in harsh near shore conditions
- Low operating expense: Once a year maintenance cycle maximizes in-situ repair reducing need for large repair vessels
- Technology based on the experience of 17,000+ onshore units operating globally and 350+ reliability engineers
