A judge in a federal court yesterday (Wednesday) permanently banned GE Renewable Energy from selling in the US its flagship Haliade-X turbines found to breach a Siemens Gamesa patent, after a case that one expert told Recharge has “enormous commercial impact” for the OEM with billions of dollars of potential orders at stake.

Justice William Young in the US court for the District of Massachusetts ruled that GE “literally infringed on Siemens Gamesa patents” and banned turbines in breach from being sold in the country.
