"The port of Rotterdam has been a real partner and provides all the necessary conditions to test the Haliade-X in the most drastic weather conditions," John Lavelle, vice president and CEO of offshore wind at GE Renewable Energy, said.

These huge new wind turbines are a marvel. They’re also the future.

These huge new wind turbines are a marvel. They’re also the future.

The massive rotor diameter, plus the steady offshore wind, plus the 12MW turbine (onshore averages around 3MW; offshore around 6MW), means that that the Haliade-X will have an unusually high capacity factor.
