GE Renewable Energy has announced that it has finalised supply and service contracts, subject to final notice to proceed, with Ocean Wind , the Ørsted Project located 15 miles off the coast of southern New Jersey, USA. Ocean Wind will feature GE’s Haliade-X 12 MW wind turbine with an option to use the 13 MW variant. The agreements will include a five-year service and warranty agreement to provide operational support for the wind turbines.
The Haliade-X 13 MW uses the same design as the 12 MW. GE Renewable Energy optimised the turbine by enhancing the cooling system and related electrical equipment so that it can produce more power using the same design and size.
