GE Renewable Energy has received three orders for its 2.X onshore wind turbines from Invenergy, a company that develops, owns and operates large-scale sustainable energy generation and storage facilities.
“GE Renewable Energy is proud to continue our longstanding relationship with Invenergy with these three wind farms,” says Vikas Anand, CEO of onshore wind Americas at GE Renewable Energy. “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.”
GE’s 2 MW product platform has a total installed capacity of more than 15 GW and operates at an average of 98% availability.
The orders include:
- 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 Renewable Energy was recognized by AWEA as the top manufacturer of wind turbines in the U.S. in 2019, supplying 45% of the total onshore wind installed nationwide. GE Renewable Energy offers customers a wide range of products and services – from onshore and offshore wind equipment to grid solutions and digital services offerings – to help them drive down the cost of electricity, notes the company.
All three projects are scheduled to be operational by the first quarter of 2021 or earlier.
