GE Vernova plans new $22 million investment in Schenectady facility

Company anticipates hiring more than 150 new employees to support new growth and meet existing and increased demand

July 10, 2024

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – GE Vernova today announced a new $22 million investment in its historic Schenectady facility to manufacture new advanced generators, helping meet existing and increased global demand from its customers. The new funding is expected to create more than 150 new jobs at the facility.

“This investment will help us deliver for our global customers and allow us to expand our highly skilled work force in the Capital District,” said CEO Scott Strazik. “We are committed to growing our best-in-class facility in Schenectady, and this is another strong step in that direction.”

The new funding will allow for manufacturing of GE Vernova’s H65 and H84 generators, which require the most advanced processes to manufacture the stator bars and stator core system and accompany the company’s most efficient HA gas turbines.

This latest investment for Schenectady comes on top of $50 million in 2023 to support manufacturing new onshore wind turbines. That funding resulted in approximately 200 new jobs and the successful delivery of 56 units year-to-date. Last year the company also announced another $11 million for the Schenectady facility to support new capacity, facility maintenance, and equipment and tool management.

GE has a 130-year legacy in New York state, which is home to GE Vernova’s Gas Power and Onshore Wind businesses and the company’s Advanced Research Center. As a newly public company, having finalized its spinoff in April, GE Vernova is assessing additional investments in the Capital Region in the future.

“This region is the foundation on which GE Vernova is built,” said Strazik. “We have amazing talent here and we plan to continue to cultivate and invest in them.”
