GE Renewable Energy, located in France, has acquired a wind turbine supply agreement from a renewable project developer OX2 based in Sweden for the Klevberget wind farm, GE Renewable Energy reports via press release.
The 146MW wind farm will be built near Ånge, Sweden, and will feature 24 GE Cypress wind turbine sets onshore.
“OX2 is one of the largest operators of wind farms in the Nordic area, and we are happy they’ve picked our most powerful onshore wind turbine for their fifth wind farm,” said Gilan Sabatier, chief commercial officer of GE Onshore Wind International.
The rotors diameters of the wind turbines will be between 158m and 164m, with capacities ranging from 4.8MW to 6.1MW, are part of GE’s Cypress line.
The wind turbines are expected to be operational in the second half of 2023, with installation work starting in the second quarter of next year. In addition, GE has also agreed to a 35-year full-service deal with OX2.
Energie Eolienne du Maroc (EEM), a subsidiary of Nareva Holding, placed an order for wind turbines with GE Renewable Energy in October.
GE committed to provide 40 of its Cypress onshore wind turbines to the Aftissat onshore wind farm, which has a capacity of 200 megawatts.
In Morocco, an order has been made for the expansion of an onshore wind farm.
