GE Renewable Energy, the eco-friendly power generation wing of General Electric, is preparing to build a truly humongous off-shore wind turbine that is set to be both the biggest and the most powerful one ever erected.
The Haliade-X wind turbine is set to come equipped with a 12-megawatt generator, rendering it more than capable of churning out nearly 50 per cent more power than the next most powerful wind turbine around. It is hoped that this wind turbine will be able to produce over 65 gigawatt hours of energy each year, which is estimated to be enough energy to power around 16,000 households in Europe.
Standing 260 meters tall and using a trio of 107-meter blades, the Haliade-X wind turbine is set to become a true icon of the renewable energy world, and could pave the way to a more eco-friendly future.
