Ge: who moved my cheese?

Northstar wind power network news: on August 4, General Electric launched a complaint against Siemens gomisa in the United States. It is understood that the case has been submitted to the US International Trade Commission. < p > < p > Ge said in a statement that sgre’s wind turbines infringed GE’s low voltage ride through and zero voltage ride through technology patents, which ensure that the wind turbine will pass voltage ride through certification. < / P > < p > this is not the first time GE has initiated a similar lawsuit in the United States. In 2008 and 2017, Mitsubishi and Vestas both faced similar lawsuits. < p > < p > at the end of May, according to the Global Wind Energy Council, the top five wind turbine manufacturers in 2019 are Vestas, Siemens gomesa, Goldwind technology, Ge renewable energy and prospect energy. < p > < p > Vestas ranked first in the market share of 18%, Siemens gomesa and Ge renewable energy ranked second and fourth with 15.7% and 11.6% respectively. Siemens gomeisa is in the top position with 39.77% market share. Together with Mitsubishi Vestas, the second largest market share, the two oligarchs have carved up more than half of the global offshore wind power market. < / P > < p > the pressure from market share alone will not make GE take the trouble to offer “intellectual property” weapons. The core problem is that each enterprise has gradually formed a fixed “sphere of influence” for the regional market. < / P > < p > in 2019, in the field of onshore wind power, GE’s market share is comparable to that of Siemens Gomes, which are 12.45% and 12.97% respectively, and most of GE’s installed capacity is in the United States. However, Siemens gomesa’s onshore wind turbines are more evenly distributed in Europe, America and Asia Pacific markets. In terms of offshore wind power, the U.S. and Asia Pacific markets are still under cultivation, while the European market is relatively mature. Siemens gomisar is an outstanding player in the offshore wind power market, with more installed capacity than Mitsubishi Vestas, Shanghai Electric and Goldwind combined. In Europe, the market is almost monopolized, only Mitsubishi Vestas has certain competitiveness. < / P > < p > in March 2018, Ge publicly released haliade-x12mw offshore direct drive generator set, which was the world’s largest offshore wind turbine; in November 2019, the prototype of this model delivered its first power generation in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in November 2019. There was also news that the record was unbreakable for at least two years. < p > < p > in May this year, Siemens gomisar launched the world’s largest offshore wind turbine, sg14-222dd offshore direct driven wind turbine, with a capacity of 14MW. < p > < p > < p > however, it can’t be done commercially, but it has been overtaken technically. Facing Siemens gomisa, which is threatening to attack the “base camp”, Ge does not seem to have many weapons to choose from. < / P > < p > it seems that intellectual property litigation can not only keep competitors out of the country, but also enable Ge to absorb the gross profit of each wind turbine sales through patent license fees, thus enabling the US technology giant to expand its leading position in the domestic market. However, Intel stor, a consulting firm, warned that GE’s move could backfire. This competition may force project developers in sgre’s current 5.1gw us order to a third wind turbine supplier. < / P > < p > “from some standardized wind turbine price data, GE’s wind turbine price is often higher than Vestas, sgre and nordex Acciona. If Ge tries to increase the cost of sgre’s wind turbines by using a royalty as a “tax” on each fan sold, they may end up in a situation where project developers can seek a cheaper option from nordex Acciona or Vestas, both of which already own Ge intellectual property rights and charge them to cost. ” Intel stor explains. Developed a “plug and play” solar power generation scheme, and “5B” won a $12 million round a financing
