Luxcara and GE Renewable Energy have singed agreement to deliver 753 MW of onshore wind capacity with the Önusberget wind farm in northern Sweden.
The project will be the largest single onshore wind farm in Europe and GE’s largest onshore wind farm contract outside of the US.
GE Renewable Energy will supply 137 of its Cypress 5.5 MW turbines, a powerful turbine with a 158-meter rotor, ideally suited for the project site’s wind speeds and climate. The turbine blades will be equipped with an ice mitigation system, ensuring a stable level of availability and reduced downtime. The parties also agreed on a 25-year full-turbine maintenance and service contract.
“We are proud to work with GE to build Europe’s largest onshore wind farm in the resource-rich north of Sweden. We were among the first to enter the Nordic wind market back in 2015 and this project reaffirms our position as the region’s largest long-term investor in the sector.”Alexandra von Bernstorff, co-founder and managing partner of Luxcara.
“The Önusberget wind farm marks our continuous commitment to the Swedish onshore wind market, extends our presence in Europe and confirms the confidence of our customers in Cypress, our most powerful onshore wind platform.”Said Jérôme Pécresse, president and CEO of GE Renewable Energy.
