GE Renewable Energy has signed a contract with Khao Kor Wind Power Co. Ltd. to supply wind turbines for the 60 MW Khao Kor wind farm in Petchaboon, Thailand.

The Khao Kor wind farm will be GE's first wind facility in Thailand, and Peter Cowling, general manager of the company's Asia-Pacific wind business, says, ‘This region has huge potential for wind power.’

Under the deal, GE will supply 24 of its 2.5-120 wind turbines, which the company says are ideal for low- to medium-wind-speed regions.

"We are delighted to collaborate with GE in this endeavor, as we aim to contribute to the country's cleaner sources of energy," says Surachet Tamronglak, managing director for Charoen Energy and Water Asia Co. Ltd. "We are anxious to begin construction on the project and expect to have the wind farm up and running by mid-2016."
