GE has completed the acquisition of ScanWind. With this move, GE has expanded its portfolio of renewable energy offerings to better serve customers. ScanWind is a developer of advanced drivetrain and control wind turbine technologies aimed at offshore deployment.
Headquartered in Trondheim, Norway, with a design-engineering center in Karlstad, Sweden, ScanWind was founded in 1999 to develop and commercialize advanced drivetrain wind turbine technology that eliminates the need for gearboxes. ScanWind's 41 employees have designed and developed the 11 turbines operating on the Norwegian coast, which are currently demonstrating the reliability and performance of this advanced technology.
