Vardar Vind and Västraby Gård Energi, the Swedish developers, have awarded turbine supply contracts to GE. The contracts also include a 15 year service agreement.
The contracts are for 13 GE 2.85-103 turbines for two wind farms in Southern Sweden.
GE will supply eight turbines for Vardar’s 22.8MW Rögle wind farm and five for Västraby Gård Energi’s 14.25MW Västraby wind farm, totalling installed capacity of 37MW.
This will go towards Sweden’s targets of reaching 50% renewable domestic energy generation by 2020. The country currently has 4.5GW of installed wind energy capacity.
