GE VERNOVA WILL INVEST $50 MILLION AT ITS SCHENECTADY FACILITY
GE Vernova will invest $50 million at its Schenectady, NY, facility to establish a new manufacturing assembly line for its onshore wind business. The site will assemble three key components for GE Vernova’s 6.1 MW turbine.
The manufacturing assembly line will be installed in the building where GE Vernova today continues to manufacture steam turbines and generators, and is anticipated to be completed by summer 2023, with the first set of components produced by early fall.
GE Vernova will assemble critical components for 6.1-158 onshore wind turbine in Schenectady, including the machine head, hub and drive train to help meet demand in the US. The turbine is designed for low-to-medium wind speeds and is equipped with an innovative carbon two-piece blade design, offering improved logistics and increased output from hard-to-reach sites.
GE Vernova headquartered in Greater Boston Area, was created in July 2022 by GE. The company provides energy consulting, gas power, and grid solutions.
