GE Renewable Energy has been selected by wind developer OX2 as the turbine supplier for the 146MW Klevberget wind farm in Ånge, Sweden.
The project will use 24 turbines from GE’s Cypress onshore wind platform and includes a 35-year full-service contract.
The Swedish wind farm will operate the turbines at 6.1MW, with a rotor diameter of 158m.
Paul Stormoen, CEO of OX2 said: “We are very pleased to start the construction of the Klevberget wind farm that will contribute a considerable amount of renewable energy in Sweden. The turbines, as well as the long-term commitment from GE, is an important part of realizing this project.”
The Cypress platform includes wind turbines with 158- and 164-meter rotor diameters, various hub heights, and power ratings between 4.8 and 6.1 MW. It is equipped with both single piece and jointed blade variants.
Gilan Sabatier, GE’s Chief Commercial Officer for Onshore Wind International, commented: “OX2 is one of the biggest developers of wind farms in the Nordic region, and we are thrilled they’ve selected our most powerful onshore wind turbine for this fifth wind farm. In partnership with OX2, we will deliver even more affordable and sustainable renewable energy to Sweden, helping the country to reach its ambitious decarbonization targets.”
The installation of the wind turbines at the project site will commence in Q2 2023 and the turbines are scheduled to be fully commissioned and operational in the second half of 2023.
