GE is in talks with Japanese conglomerate Toshiba about the possibility of co-producing technology for offshore wind turbines.
The talks are centred on the production of nacelles, citing unnamed sources.
It said that a Toshiba plant in Yokohama, Japan, could be used for the construction of the units.
GE and Toshiba have partnered previously on nuclear and thermal power plant technology.
A GE spokesperson said the company does not comment on “rumours and speculation”.
Toshiba had not responded to a request for comment at press time.
In November last year, Toshiba said it was developing what it called a “state-of-the-art” wind turbine as part of a move into the offshore wind market.
