CEZ Group's 600 MW Fantanele/Cogealac wind park, Europe's largest onshore wind project, is fully operational. The project, located in Romania, features 240 GE 2.5 MW wind turbines.

The final wind turbine for Fantanele/Cogealac was connected to the regional grid in late November. The new wind park is located in Dobrogea, Constanta County, Romania, which is one of the most promising wind power regions in the country, according to GE. The project's owner, CEZ Romania, is part of CEZ Group, the largest utility in Central Europe.

According to GE, the 2.5 MW machine features larger rotors, higher towers and greater hub heights than previous models, resulting in greater power output. Earlier this year, GE notes the 2.5 MW turbine fleet surpassed 2 GW of installed capacity.
