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.
