Main presentation

GE Offshore Wind, a GE Renewable Energy business, is headquartered in Nantes, France, and has more than 600 employees in the world (with main offices in France, Spain, Germany, China and the US). GE Offshore Wind is the only offshore wind turbine supplier to have projects in Europe, Asia and the Americas. On March 2018, we announced a strategic investment plan to develop Haliade-X 12 MW, the most powerful offshore wind turbine to-date, to be assembled in Saint-Nazaire, with LM Wind Power blades to be manufactured in Cherbourg. The first prototype will be assembled end of summer 2019 in Rotterdam.
