Continuously innovating—with a focus on quality and efficiency
Developed for all offshore conditions, the Haliade 150-6 MW turbine combines proven technology and innovation to provide high yield and uncompromising reliability that will lower the cost of offshore energy and create more efficient offshore turbines.
Thanks to its 150-meter diameter rotor (with blades stretching 73.50m), the Haliade 150-6MW offshore turbine can supply power to the equivalent of about 5,000 European homes. Currently, this 6 MW offshore wind turbine is powering tens of thousands of homes in Germany as well as the state of Rhode Island. Located on Block Island, GE constructed and installed the first offshore wind farm in the USA in 2016, and now also the first one in France too, in 2022. Once operational, the wind farm of Saint-Nazaire (France) will produce the equivalent of 20% of the Loire-Atlantique area’s annual electricity consumption.

Key features from the 150-6 MW offshore wind turbine
The Haliade 150-6 MW is the new generation of direct-drive offshore wind turbine, delivering renewable energy to thousands of households at a competitive cost.
Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Generator (PMG)
The Pure Torque design of the 6 MW wind turbine protects the generator to ensure and improve its performance by diverting unwanted stresses from the wind safely to the turbine’s tower though the main frame. This allows the minimum air gap to be maintained between the generator rotor and stator all times, offering the highest efficiency.
The Haliade 150-6 MW’s PMG is a more compact and lightweight design compared to earlier generation direct-drive systems, increasing reliability and offshore wind turbine availability, while reducing maintenance costs.
Strength and durability are increased with the 150m diameter rotor combined with 73.5m light blade.

Before the ground was even broken on Merkur, a number of wind energy planning and financial challenges entered the picture, necessitating a collaboration among GE businesses.
Block Island: Massive magnets to power the US
Offshore wind farms may be more productive than their onshore counterparts, but they do come with some issues that you don’t see on land. They’re harder to build and maintain, for instance—but thanks to some inventive GE engineers, that may not always be the case.
