Vestas Wind Systems A/S and GE Renewable Energy have settled all disputes related to multiple claims of patent infringement, said a joint announcement.

"The settlement of all disputes related to multiple patent infringement claims in the U.S., result in the discontinuation of the case pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California as well as all other pending proceedings related to the patents-in-suit," said the announcement.

GE had initially filed a patent dispute in California against Vestas in 2017, over its zero-voltage ride-through technology, which enables wind turbines to manage grid faults.

The patents-in-suit generally relate to technologies that enable wind turbines to manage grid faults.

With this settlement, any past infringements of the patents-in-suit are fully released. In addition, the settlement includes a cross-license to the patents-in-suit and their family members, as well as a confidential payment from Vestas to GE.
