• GE’s 1,500th Wind Turbine in Canada Installed at China Longyuan Canada’s Dufferin Wind Farm;
• Canada’s First GE 2.85-103 and 1.6-100 Wind Turbines Installed in 2014.

GE is celebrating this milestone with wind industry peers at this week’s CanWEA 2014 Wind Energy Conference & Exhibition in Montreal.

The landmark turbine is a GE 1.6-100 wind turbine for China Longyuan Canada’s Dufferin wind farm. Dufferin is the wind developer’s first wind farm in North America.

“Longyuan Canada is proud to be a part of this landmark for GE,” said Jeff Hammond, Senior Vice President of Longyuan Canada Renewables Ltd. “The Dufferin wind farm is the first wind farm developed by our company outside of China, and we are grateful for GE’s assistance in making it a success.”

GE also installed its first Canadian 1.6-100 and 2.85-103 wind turbines in 2014.

Since its first wind turbine installation in Canada in 2004 in Alberta, GE’s wind presence has expanded to four provinces Alberta, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec. GE’s installed base of wind turbines in Canada range from GE 1.5-77 to 2.85-103 wind turbines, with the most units installed in Ontario.

“GE is thrilled to reach this landmark in Canada,” said Anne McEntee, president and chief executive officer of GE’s renewable energy business. “We see it as a testament to the success of our customers in the country, and their success in bringing renewable energy to Canadian citizens.”

According to the Canadian Wind Energy Association, wind energy supplies nearly three percent of Canada’s electricity demand with over 8 GW of installed wind capacity. CanWEA has set a goal to reach a target of producing 20 percent or more of Canada’s energy with wind energy by 2025, and Canada ranked fifth overall in global wind installations in 2013.

GE has a global wind turbine fleet installed base of more than 37 gigawatts (GW). Click here to see GE Canada’s graphic illustration of wind farms across Canada, and the potential of wind power in the country.
