GE wins 576MW onshore wind turbine order in US

NEW YORK, September 24, 2020

GE Renewable Energy has announced a trio of orders for its 2.X onshore wind turbines with Invenergy. The 576 MW, 187-turbine order will power the equivalent of 160,000 American homes across three US states.

The agreement includes:

•    54 2.X-127 turbines for the 110 MW Crescent Wind Energy Center in Michigan
•    30 2.X-127 and 6 2.X-116 turbines for the 166 MW Contrail Wind Energy Center in Iowa
•    97 2.X-127 for the 300 MW Deuel Harvest Wind Energy Center in South Dakota

GE’s best-selling 2 MW product platform has a total installed capacity of more than 15 GW and operates at an industry-leading average of 98+ percent availability.

Vikas Anand, GE Renewable Energy CEO for Onshore Wind Americas, said: “GE Renewable Energy is proud to continue our longstanding relationship with Invenergy with these three wind farms. Our 2.X platform leverages proven, reliable technology and is ideally suited for this part of the country at a time when the world needs access to clean, affordable energy.”

All three projects are scheduled to be operational by the first quarter of 2021 or earlier.

GE Renewable Energy was recently recognized by AWEA as the top manufacturer of wind turbines in the US in 2019, supplying 45% of the total onshore wind installed nationwide. – TradeArabia News Service
