AEP sues GE Vernova over 1.5GW turbine problems


July 3, 2024

American Electric Power has filed legal action against GE Vernova over alleged defects in turbines used at three onshore wind farms totalling 1.5GW in US state Oklahoma.

AEP filed a lawsuit with the New York Supreme Court on 28th June claiming that the turbines have “exhibited numerous material defects on major components and experienced several complete failures” shortly after entering commercial operation. The turbines are used at the 999MW Traverse, the 287MW Maverick and 199MW Sundance projects.

GE Vernova said it is reviewing the claim and would continue to work closely with AEP.
