GE Renewable Energy has announced that it plans to open a new blade manufacturing facility in Teesside in the North East of England.
LM Wind Power plans to set up and operate this plant which will be dedicated to the production of its 107-meter- long offshore wind turbine blades for GE’s Haliade-X offshore wind turbine. GE Renewable Energy estimates that this new plant, set to open and start production in 2023, could create up to 750 direct jobs and up to 1,500 indirect jobs in the area to support the entire value chain needed to operate this facility. The new blade manufacturing plant will be located on Teesworks which is located on the banks of the River Tees, at the heart of the Tees Valley's industrial landscape.
