Goldwind introduces new wind turbine GW4S

Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology (Goldwind) has introduced the new GW4S smart wind turbine, a 4MW platform.

The product maintains Goldwind's Permanent Magnet Direct Drive (PMDD) turbine technology and is a direct evolution of the existing 3S platform – a turbine series that has industry-leading availability and performance.

Goldwind's 4S Permanent Magnet Direct-Drive (PMDD) wind turbine capitalizes on the scalability and supply chain of the 3S platform to bring turbines with a rated power range between 4.0 and 4.2MW. The latest Goldwind turbine for international markets is designed for wind class IIA and features rotor diameters up to 136 meters.

"A prototype of the GW4S will be installed during the second quarter of 2018 in China. The turbine will be ready for international commercial deployment in the first quarter of 2019 and target markets include North America, Australia, South America and Turkey," said Tony Pan, CEO of Goldwind International.
