Paris, September 14, 2018 - GE Renewable Energy today announced the completion of the installation of the latest Haliade 150-6 MW offshore wind turbine on the 396 MW Merkur offshore wind farm in Germany. The GE Renewable Energy onsite team will continue the commissioning activities prior to transferring the operation to the customer.

GE Renewable Energy was selected in June 2015 by Merkur Offshore for the supply of 66 GE GE HaliadeTM 150-6 MW offshore wind turbines; in addition, it had signed a 10-year global operating and maintenance service contract.

John Lavelle, VP & CEO of GE Renewable Energy's offshore wind business, said: "This is GE's first large-scale offshore wind project. We ensured its installation on time, thus testifying to our ability to manage complex offshore projects. We are delighted to be part of a project that is part of Germany's ongoing efforts to turn to renewable energy in its energy mix. "

Located in the North Sea, about 35 km north of the island of Borkum, the Merkur offshore wind farm is set to become one of the largest offshore wind farms in Germany, producing around 1,750 GWh per year for power 500,000 homes.

The components of Merkur offshore wind turbines were manufactured in different countries: the nacelles were assembled in Saint-Nazaire, the blades were made by LM Wind Power in Castellón, Spain, and the masts were produced in Germany and China. . All components were transported to the logistics base in Eemshaven, The Netherlands, where they were prepared for installation at sea.
