GE says it will supply SSE Renewables with 33 GE 2.85-100 wind turbines for the 94 MW Dunmaglass Wind Farm, located in the Monadhliath Mountains, near Inverness, Scotland.
According to GE, the turbine maker says the wind turbines were specifically designed with a 70-meter tower to meet local requirements that include a maximum tip height of 120 meters.
SSE, which acquired the project from Renewable Energy Systems Group in May 2013, is the U.K. and Ireland's largest renewable energy generator with approximately 3.3 GW of renewable energy capacity. To date, SSE currently is operating 139 GE wind turbines, and an additional 43 are due to be commissioned by the end of 2015. Last March, GE said it would provide 10 1.6-MW wind turbines for the Langhope Rig Wind Farm in Scotland, which is currently under construction.
