Ørsted has selected GE Renewable Energy as the preferred turbine supplier for two of its US offshore wind farms which marks the world’s first commercial deployment of GE’s Haliade-X 12 MW offshore wind turbine.
Skipjack (120 MW) off the coast of Maryland. Expected commissioning: 2022.
Ocean Wind (1,100 MW) off the coast of New Jersey. Expected commissioning: 2024.
