GE Haliade-X 12MW on UK Tour

GE Renewable Energy is holding a series of supply chain engagement events in the UK for its Haliade-X 12MW offshore wind turbine.

The events are part of GE’s supply chain plan for the world’s most powerful offshore wind turbine and will welcome potential suppliers that have suitable products or services that could support its production.

GE is holding the first meeting on 30 April at Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult in Blyth, Northumberland, from 09:00 to 12:00 local time.

Further two events will be held in partnership with the Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise on 7 and 8 May in Edinburgh.

More supply chain events are expected to be announced in Hull and East Anglia.

To remind, GE announced in March 2018 that it will invest more than USD 400 million to develop and deploy Haliade-X 12MW. The turbine will be installed in Maasvlakte-Rotterdam this summer and will be placed onshore to facilitate access for testing.
