Haliade-X wind turbine

The world’s most powerful wind turbine with a 12 MW capacity

Identification

The Haliade-X solves the challenge of high clean electricity cost with a larger wind turbine that requires less installation on a single wind turbine for the same wind farm total capacity.

Today, most wind power produced is dependent on subsidies to reach a competitive price. The Haliade-X Solution solves this challenge by providing a high power, efficient wind turbine. A larger wind turbine enables a lower electricity price since it lowers the number of cabling, foundations material and installation while increasing the electricity yield, thanks to a larger rotor relative to the size of the generators. The wind turbine’s capacity factor is increased up to 12 MW, enabling a lower cost of electricity. By using new technologies, the Haliade-X is able to capture the advantage of scaling up wind turbines and can outperform the capacity of competitors by up to 50%.

The environmental benefits

  • One Haliade-X 12 MW turbine can generate up to 67 GWh of gross annual energy production, providing enough clean energy to power 16,000 European households
  • Up to 50% greater capacity than competitors
03.

The Financial benefits

  • Lower operations and installation cost because 26% less turbines have to be installed for the same wind farm total capacity
  • Lower LCOE than other wind turbine as the size of the turbine enabling higher capacity factor.

Jan De Nul to Install 14 MW Wind Turbines at Dogger Bank C

Jan De Nul has signed an agreement with Dogger Bank Wind Farm for the transport and installation of 87 GE Haliade-X 14 MW units. The contract is subject to the project’s third phase reaching financial close later this year. The installation vessel Voltaire is scheduled to install wind turbines on the first two phases, as well.

GE and Toshiba Bringing Haliade-X Offshore Wind Turbine to Japan

The two companies will leverage their collective technology, manufacturing facilities and skills. Toshiba will assemble, warehouse, transport Haliade-X nacelles, provide preventative maintenance services, and have critical sales and commercial responsibilities.

EGEB: GE to open UK factory to build massive Haliade-X blades

GE's renewables unit makes zero waste pledge for wind turbine blade production

GE's LM Wind Power subsidiary says it will produce zero waste wind turbine blades by 2030. The company is the latest in the wind turbine sector to try to develop more sustainable production processes. It is part of the DecomBlades consortium, an initiative focused on blade recycling.

GE designs massive floating turbine to take wind energy into deep water

GE is developing a floating wind turbine that can operate in deeper waters. The 12-MW Haliade-X is the world's largest offshore wind turbine. Floating turbines would be anchored to the seabed but via long tethers. GE is collaborating with marine design firm Glosten on the project.

Final phase of 'world's largest offshore wind farm' will use GE's giant turbines

The Dogger Bank Wind Farm will be situated off the coast of northeast England in the North Sea. When fully up and running, it will be able to power millions of homes per year. 87 of GE Renewable Energy's Haliade-X 14 MW turbines will be used at the project.

Offshore wind power: LM Wind Power will recruit 300 people this year for its Cherbourg plant

The workforce of the LM Wind Power plant in Cherbourg should amount to nearly 800 employees with the recruitments planned for this year. The factory now has more than 450 employees, 34% of whom are women. The Cherbourg plant was the first wind turbine blade manufacturing site in France.
