Thread regarding General Electric Co. layoffs


Siemens Gamesa has claimed a partial victory in a US patent infringement case taken against GE Renewable Energy over offshore turbines.

The German-Spanish manufacturer said it received a “favorable ruling” on Friday in a federal court in Massachusetts. Another of the claims was not upheld, according to GE.

A jury in Boston found that GE infringed on one of Siemens Gamesa’s patents related to structural support of large offshore turbines, Siemens Gamesa said.
The court awarded the European giant a royalty rate of $30,000 per megawatt, said a statement issued by the turbine company.

“Fair and legal competition is vital to the success of the renewable energy industry, both in the United States and around the world,” said Steve Dayney, Head of Offshore North America for Siemens Gamesa.

“Siemens Gamesa welcomes the jury’s verdict on our patent.”

GE Renewable Energy said it is reviewing its “legal options” following the ruling. A spokesman pointed out that the verdict also found “one of the patents was invalid and we did not infringe”.

“We…remain committed to the US offshore wind market,” added the spokesman.

@iov+1hlC1OnS, too too much of BS, drama and manipulation used. Who forgot about Harry Markopolos remarks? Fake news you say?

Can’t play fair in any working relationships involving investors, workers, government or other companies. Such a shame, integrity has been missing for years!

Deny! Deny! Deny! or “ I did not know copyright infringement was against the law.”
