GE said the $2 billion of orders was down 6% with 251 fewer units sold compared with the same period of 2015.

Revenue however was up 28% for the renewables division formed following its acquisition of Alstom's power business in November 2015.

The increase in revenue was due to an increase in wind turbine shipments, GE said.
