US wind turbine manufacturer GE has secured two Chinese orders for a total of 199.5 MW. The projects, which are both located in the northern Hebei province surrounding Beijing, will be equipped with 54 of GE's 2.75 MW turbines and 27 of the slightly smaller 1.85 MW turbines, announces GE in a statement.

Last year, the US manufacturer was the third-largest foreign player, after Vestas and Gamesa, with installations of a total 205 MW.
