GE Renewable Energy Receives USA First Commercial scale Offshore Wind Farm Wind Turbine stable Order
GE Renewable Energy announced that it had received an order from Vineyard Wind in September to provide Haliade-X offshore wind turbines for Vineyard Wind 1, the first commercial-scale offshore wind farm in the United States.
GE Renewable Energy was announced in December 2020 as the preferred wind turbine supplier for this project.
Vineyard Wind 1 recently became the first offshore wind farm in the United States to achieve financial settlement, which allowed GE to finally win the contract.
The Vineyard Wind 1 project is located 15 miles from the coast of Massachusetts and will be equipped with 62 Haliade-X 13MW wind turbines, which is currently the largest offshore wind turbine in the world.
The project is expected to start grid-connected power generation in 2023.
As the largest offshore wind turbine at present, GE Haliade-X prototype in the Netherlands has started operation and obtained DNV type certification in early 2021.
