GE & A-Power Sign Gearbox Deals

GE Drivetrain Technologies, a unit of GE Transportation, and A-Power Energy Generation Systems Ltd. announced that the companies have signed supply and joint venture agreements.

The agreements call for GE Drivetrain Technologies to supply A-Power with 900 2.7-megawatt (MW) wind turbine gearboxes and to establish a joint venture partnership for a wind turbine gearbox manufacturing plant in China. The contracts follow the signing of letters of intent in January of this year.

The agreements support China’s initiative to increase wind energy output from one gigawatt in 2005 to 100 gigawatts by 2020 and are the basis for additional future investments by GE Drivetrain Technologies in its local supply chain and advanced wind turbine drive train products.
