Industrial giant General Electric is investing in wind power, hoping its offshore products can soon rival the might of its onshore sector. In Massachusetts this week, it received a 351-foot blade that will be part of the Haliade-X windmill, what it is calling the most powerful offshore wind turbine in the world. The blades will undergo fatigue tests over the coming months.
