Richardson Electronics, announces that its ULTRA3000 Pitch Energy Module (PEM) has been selected by GE Vernova to be featured on their recently launched online marketplace for onshore wind parts and essentials.

GE’s marketplace specialises in onshore wind turbine parts, including parts for other OEM wind turbines. Richardson Electronics has worked with GE to make this product available to the owner/operators of GE wind turbines in North America.

The marketplace will feature key products for wind turbines from global technology companies including Richardson Electronics’ ULTRA3000 and will be the go-to website for GE wind turbine owner/operators. With more than 100,000 items available for purchase supporting both GE and other OEM onshore wind turbines, the store will enable wind farm owners to purchase all the spare parts and wind farm essentials they need in one simple transaction.

Richardson Electronics’ ULTRA3000 is a drop-in replacement for lead acid batteries used in electric pitch systems. With its plug-and-play technology, owners can replace one battery at a time on an ‘as needed’ basis or retrofit the entire pitch system. With the increased reliability of ultracapacitors over lead acid batteries, owners can reduce nuisance battery faults and increase wind turbine availability.

“We are very excited about the new agreement with GE. We are enjoying huge success with the ULTRA3000 PEM, and this agreement will nearly double our served available market in North America. We look forward to working with GE to bring this product and others to an expanded market. As we expand our portfolio of products designed to support wind turbine customers, we will work with GE as a partner,” said Greg Peloquin, Executive Vice President and General Manager Power Microwave and Green Energy Solutions Group.

GE Vernova announced at the CLEANPOWER Conference that it’s expanded Onshore Wind Online Shop also helps customers to improve cashflow, with flexible credit options, digital invoicing, and the ability to purchase from multiple suppliers all in one location with a single purchase order.

The Richardson Electronics’ team will be exhibiting in booth (#813) at the CLEANPOWER Conference and Exhibition through May 25, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Centre in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Company’s patented ultracapacitor-based pitch energy module, the ULTRA3000, will also be on display.
