Vattenfall and GE Renewable Energy plan to join forces in the deployment of GE’s new wind turbine, the Haliade-X in Europe. With a capacity of 12MW, it is the largest offshore wind turbine on the market to date. Development and production of the new 12MW turbine will mostly take place in France.

Mr Gunnar Groebler, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Wind said that "As a leader of the wind industry, we are constantly striving for top notch technology. The cooperation with GE Renewable Energy enables us to remain one step ahead in wind turbine technology developments. The size and performance of Haliade-X 12MW will support us to further improve the competitiveness of offshore wind energy production. Due to a lower number of turbines needed for future windfarms, there is also a positive impact on the environmental footprint.”

This cooperation is the result of 12 months of intensive exchanges, during which Vattenfall conducted an in-depth technical due diligence and both companies jointly worked on the customization of the platform. The final details of the cooperation will be defined by summer and the organizations will deep dive on specific projects within Vattenfall offshore wind pipeline in the fall.

Mr Gunnar Groebler said that "Vattenfall wants to achieve fossil free living within one generation. By doing that it is also our role to use our capabilities to contribute to the development and reinforcement of the supply chain in Europe and in this particular case, in France.”
