GE has secured new wind turbine contracts throughout Europe totaling approximately 213 MW.
In Germany, the company has received 110 MW of orders to supply 44 of its 2.5-120 turbines for eight new wind farms. The company will provide the wind turbines to Juwi, Pfalzwerke, Max Bogl Wiesner and Abo-Wind. The majority of the orders are for framework agreements with Juwi and Pfalzwerke in southern Germany, with the first project, located at Juwi's Rehborn wind farm, currently under construction.
In Sweden, GE will provide six 1.6-100 turbines to the 9.6 MW Erikshester wind farm. Eksjo Energi AB and 11 other shareholders own the project, and VETAB is the majority shareholder.
In Scotland, GE will supply SSE Renewables with 10 of its 1.6-82.5 wind turbines for the 16 MW Langhope Rig wind farm. GE notes it is using that turbine model, which has a hub height of 82.5 meters, because the wind farm has a hub height restriction of 82.5 meters and a blade length restriction of 40.2 meters.
In northern France, GE will supply 27 2.85-MW wind turbines and related services for several wind farm projects totaling about 77 MW. The projects are each owned and built by French developers Boralex Inc., InnoVent GmbH and a Belgic company.
