GE Renewable Energy
Date: 2019-07-24
From its production facility in Saint-Nazaire, France, GE Renewable Energy is reporting the unveiling of the first-ever nacelle for its mammoth 12Mw Haliade-X offshore wind turbine. The Haliade-X measures 260 meters in height and boasts a 220-meter rotor capable of generating enough clean electricity for 16,000 households. Blades for the turbine will measure 107 meters in length and help the turbine generate 67 GWh in gross annual energy.

The Halide-X will be shipped to Rotterdam for testing and final assembly.

The Saint-Nazaire production facility is also assembling a second nacelle for delivery to the UK's Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult site at Blyth for testing.
