Inside the Headline

GE Renewable Energy will be responsible for supplying 37 units of 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines. The turbines will be set up in the 99.9 MW Rajkot wind farm located in Gujarat, India. The deal will likely help the wind farm to generate sufficient power for local consumers and businesses, thus catering to the increasing demand for renewable and sustainable energy.

As noted, the product design will be done at the company’s technology center in Bengaluru, while the blades for the wind turbines are to be supplied by its plants located in Vadodara. The product assembly will take place at the company’s multi-modal manufacturing plant in Pune. The wind turbines are anticipated to work efficiently in Gujarat, which has low wind speed conditions.

This contract strengthens GE Renewable Energy’s ties with Continuum Green Energy. In 2021, the company received a contract from Continuum Green Energy to provide 55 units of its 2.7-132 onshore wind turbines for the 148.5 MW wind farm in Morjar, Bhuj, Gujarat.

It’s worth noting that in 2021, GE Renewable Energy clinched more than 1.2 GW of orders in India, making it the biggest manufacturer of wind turbine original equipment in the country.

Zacks Rank, Price Performance and Estimate Trend

General Electric, with a $112.3 billion market capitalization, currently carries a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). The company has been experiencing weakness in the onshore wind market in the United States and headwinds related to supply-chain constraints and inflationary pressures. However, its portfolio-restructuring program, expansion in the digital business and product innovation are likely to aid.
