GE’s Haliade Kit Reaches China

Haliade nacelles and blades for the Fujian Xinghua Gulf demo project have reached China, GE Renewable Energy said.

The nacelles and blades for three Haliade 150-6MW offshore wind turbines were loaded and shipped out of the Port of Esbjerg, Denmark, in early August.

The nacelles and generators were manufactured at GE’s Offshore Wind facility in Saint-Nazaire, France, while the blades were manufactured by LM Wind Power in Denmark.

The tower sections, manufactured locally in China, are to follow after which the installation of the wind turbines will commence, the company said. The installation is expected to take place during the last quarter of 2017.

Fuqing Haixia Electricity Generation Company, a joint venture between China Three Gorges and Fujian Energy, ordered the three turbines from GE in March 2017.

The contract also includes technical support and a two-year operation and maintenance (O&M) service.

GE Renewable Energy is one of the several wind turbine suppliers to participate in the 73MW wind farm project, which will comprise 14 wind turbines.
