During the third quarter, GE won a contract from Invenergy to supply 800 turbines to American’s largest wind farm, the 2GW Wind Catcher project in Oklahoma.
The manufacturer also introduced its 4.8MW turbine — GE’s largest onshore turbine to date.
"This was a very challenging quarter," chairman and CEO John Flannery admitted.
"While a majority of our businesses had solid earnings performance, this was offset by a decline in Power performance in a difficult market."
GE’s Power division saw revenues fall 4% year-on-year in the quarter, and profits were down 51%.
Total group revenue totalled $33.5 billion in Q3, a 14% year-on-year increase.
