GE's Pensacola assembly plant advances wind power in Florida
GE’s Wind Energy plant in Pensacola assembles 2.5 megawatt turbines, each with the capacity to provide the annual power needs for up to 1,500 homes. The 300,000-sq.-ft. plant, which overlooks Pensacola Bay, is the only wind turbine manufacturer in Florida.
“We are seeing some strong volume in the U.S. wind energy market,” says plant manager Gary Wiesner. “We’re using data gathered from the wind turbines we manufactured five to 10 years ago to drive down cost of wind energy. As a result, our wind turbines have gotten progressively larger and more powerful,” says Wiesner.
