16.04.2016 GE interested in German offshore wind, eastern Europe

General Electric, fresh from taking on the offshore wind business of rival Alstom , is positioning itself in Germany's expanding offshore wind sector and looking at eastern Europe.

GE, the world's third-biggest wind turbine manufacturer by market share after Denmark's Vestas and China's Goldwind, expects to complete a high-profile offshore wind link called DolWin3, which is likely to lead to further ventures.

DolWin3 involves converter stations and connecting cable systems for a platform operated by grid firm TenneT (IPO-TTH.AS: Quote) which clusters 900 megawatt of wind farms and links them with the mainland.
