GE: first turbines for Merkur windfarm

The two-year-old GE Renewable Energy plant at Montoir-de-Bretagne near Saint-Nazaire is producing wind turbines at maximum capacity. The plant, developed and commissioned by then-owner Alstom, is the only one in France building turbines for offshore windfarms. GE Renewable Energy (France) recently delivered the first 6-MW Haliade 150 turbine for Germany’s Merkur programme in the North Sea.
