GE Reports 1.4 GW of Wind Orders in December

Wind Power RFP for Renewable Energy Goal

GE Renewable Energy (NYSE: GE) says it secured 1.4 GW of firm, unconditional wind turbine orders in December. 

The GE unit will supply more than 20 new wind projects in seven countries.

“We continue to focus on driving global growth for our business, and the international scope of these deals reflects that effort,” said Anne McEntee, president and CEP of GE’s onshore wind business.  “We are pleased to see customers adopting our newest hardware and software turbine technologies, and we have built a strong backlog heading into 2016.”

In the U.S., GE was chosen by Lincoln Clean Energy and Starwood to supply 2.3-116 turbines for the 230-MW Horse Creek wind farm in north Texas.

GE Renewable Energy was launched in November after GE’s Alstom acquisition, which grew GE’s European wind turbine installed base by about 50 percent as well as its global wind footprint to more than 30,000 turbines.
