Wind Industry Profile of
Magnetic Attraction: GE Researchers Tapping Healthcare Experience to Scale Up Offshore Wind Power

Awarded additional $20.3 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to build and test a prototype of an ultra-efficient, lightweight superconducting generator / Applying 40+ years of IP and application experience scaling superconducting magnet technology for GE’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) business to increase wind energy output / Leveraging well-established supply chain for MRI to produce lower cost wind power / Use of superconducting magnets would eliminate the need for rare earth materials in future generator designs

Could the high field magnets used in MRI scanners that help doctors see and diagnose disease inside the human body unlock the key to generating more wind energy?  A multi-disciplinary team of GE engineers at GE’s Research Lab in Niskayuna,... ... More: Official Press Release GE
