The manufacturer said the Danish developer will use 12MW Haliade-X units, with the option to deploy the 13MW variant built into the agreement.

A five year service and warranty contract is also included, with contracts subject to a final notice to proceed for the wind farm located off New Jersey.

GE offshore wind chief executive John Lavelle said: “We appreciate the continued confidence that Orsted has shown in our Haliade-X turbine.

“The New Jersey Wind Port will be a great resource for the offshore wind industry, including GE Renewable Energy, to use in maximizing the environmental and economic development benefits that offshore wind can bring to the state and the nation.

“We look forward to tapping into New Jersey’s qualified workforce to help install and service these state-of-the art turbines in a safe and efficient manner.”

Orsted offshore boss Martin Neubert added the “ever-increasing capacity of wind turbines has been fundamental to making offshore wind energy competitive with electricity from fossil fuel generation”.

“We look forward to working with GE on deploying the new turbine on our Mid-Atlantic projects,” he said.
