The 203 ft wind turbine blade GE built is the world’s largest

Ameya Paleja writes in Interesting Engineering that GE has built the world’s tallest wind turbine.

The C3 Take
  • At 203 feet, GE has built the largest wind turbine blade.
  • The blade is expected to last 20 to 25 years, but has an added benefit of being able to be recycled at the end of its lifespan.
  • The turbine will also be built on towers that are made with recyclable steel.

“The 203 foot (62 m) blade uses thermoplastic resin from Arkema and glass fabrics, from Owens Corning, partner companies in the ZEBRA project. By combining the two, the project claims to achieve the performance levels of a regular wind turbine with the added benefit of being recycled at the end of its lifetime.”
