A U.S. Manufacturing First For GE Vernova Onshore Wind
Today, GE Vernova announced that it has completed the first onshore wind turbine produced on a new wind manufacturing assembly line in Schenectady, New York. As the facility completes its ramp up, 200 skilled employees will manufacture and assemble components for over 100 units of GE Vernova’s workhorse 6MW onshore turbine next year alone. The new manufacturing assembly line is in the same building where GE Vernova continues to manufacture steam turbines and generators for its gas power business, leveraging skillsets and learnings across the company.
GE Vernova CEO Scott Strazik said, “The production of the first onshore wind turbine components ever manufactured and assembled in Schenectady marks an exciting milestone in our history books. At GE Vernova, we’re leveraging more than 130 years of GE’s history to lead a new era of energy, and we will continue to work closely with our customers to bring more renewable energy online and help accelerate the energy transition.”
