Anaheim, CA — May 24, 2017—GE Renewable Energy (NYSE: GE) today announced it has signed a cybersecurity agreement with Invenergy, North America’s largest independent, privately held clean energy provider, to secure their entire fleet of wind turbines, as well as a framework to add future wind farms to the network. Worth more than $13M over ten years, this is one of the largest cybersecurity deals in the history of the Industrial Internet.
Wurldtech, a GE Company, is focused on cybersecurity and protecting operational technology in addition to information technology. This agreement includes upgrading Invenergy’s legacy controls, up-grading and protecting their network security with Wurldtech’s Opshield, a cutting-edge purpose-built security solution for industrial and process control environments; and finally, GE and Wurldtech will provide Invenergy with software maintenance, updates, and patches for the duration of the ten-year term.
“As online threats multiply and the electric grid goes digital, cyber security is a top priority for Invenergy,” said Jim Shield, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Invenergy. “We are proud of our collaboration with the GE Digital team to develop a long-term, enterprise-wide cyber security agreement that met our operational needs.”
“This took a huge effort from our teams across all functions to get the deal across the line,” said Sanjeev Addala, Chief Digital Officer at GE Renewable Energy. “We are looking forward to building on the success of supporting Invenergy’s fleet under contract and expanding it to other wind fleets. It’s very exciting to work with one of our best customers, Invenergy, on their digital transformation!”
