Goldwind Americas has completed the installation of its GW 3MW(S) Smart Wind Turbine test unit at the UL Advanced Wind Turbine Test Facility located at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas. The scalable 3-megawatt test turbine has an assembled hub height of 130 meters and a blade tip height of 199.2 meters, making it the tallest wind turbine in the United States. Developed by Goldwind, the onshore GW 3MW(S) prototype features scalable rated capacity of up to 3.57MW and a rotor diameter of 136m. The platform’s structured design maintains Goldwind’s Permanent Magnet Direct Drive (PMDD) turbine technology and incorporates attributes from the GW 1.5 and GW 2.5MW platforms. The GW 3MW(S) features scalable capacity, smart turbine controls, and a structured design.
