GE to supply E.On with wind energy-boosting system

General Electric (GE) said E.On Climate & Renewables’ contract for GE’s PowerUp, a customized software-enabled platform that the company said can increase a wind farm’s output by up to 5 percent. EC&R will enhance 469 of its GE 1.5-77 wind turbines with the PowerUp platform.

The PowerUp offering agreement between E.On and GE is an outcomes-based approach. E.On will pay GE only on the actual benefit of the PowerUp platform.

GE and E.On agreed to a set point of additional annual energy production per wind turbine, which could bring the equivalent power of as many as 19 new 1.5-77 wind turbines for the E.On fleet.

GE will work with E.On to perform a complete before-and-after wind farm power-performance analysis to validate the performance improvement.
