GE will invest up to $5 million over the next two years to add a second manufacturing location for GE’s aeroderivative units for the Americas region in its existing Global Technology Center in Greenville, South Carolina.

GE’s Global Technology Center in Greenville will increase manufacturing capability to support deliveries in the Americans region, but also the global aeroderivative growth.

“With the increasing penetration of renewable energy, operational flexibility is key, and our aeroderivative turbines are engineered to provide reliable stable power to balance fluctuating renewable resources,” said Clive Nickolay, CEO aeroderivative business, GE. “Our Center in Greenville has been a key industrial and talent hub for GE over the last five decades. This investment will help us better service power plant and industrial operators based in the Americas making an important contribution in reducing the carbon emissions of the power sector through the supply of flexible, dispatchable, and efficient power plants compared to earlier coal and gas power plants.”

The site, expected to add up to 25 employees, will adopt lean methodologies to drive its transformation: two new lean lines will be created to start manufacturing aeroderivative units.
