GE has announced that it has submitted a plan to construct two new manufacturing facilities in New York if it wins a sufficient volume of orders from customers in the State’s ongoing solicitation for up to 4.6 GW of offshore wind. GE proposed building the factories with Carver Companies at their Port of Coeymans site.
Should GE receive sufficient order volume, LM Wind Power, a GE subsidiary, is ready to build a facility to manufacture offshore wind turbine blades—creating approximately 650 direct jobs, with approximately 35% of those jobs coming from disadvantaged communities. Approximately 900 additional indirect jobs and over 500 construction jobs would be created with this facility.
GE Vernova, GE’s portfolio of energy businesses, proposed building a facility to build nacelles. This facility would create approximately 220 direct jobs, with approximately 35% of those jobs coming from disadvantaged communities. Additionally, almost 500 indirect jobs and approximately 500 construction jobs would be created with this facility.
The two facilities would produce components for the next generation of GE’s Haliade-X offshore wind turbine.
