GE to supply turbines for Swedish wind farm

17 Feb 2021

GE Renewable Energy has secured a contract from German asset management firm Luxcara to supply turbines for a 753MW onshore wind farm in northern Sweden.

The Önusberget project is said to be the largest single onshore wind farm in Europe and GE’s largest onshore wind farm contract outside of the US. Luxcara has already commenced infrastructure work at the project, and GE is expected to begin installing turbines as early as July this year.

Under the contract, GE Renewable Energy will supply 137 of its Cypress 5.5MW turbines, with a 158m rotor. The turbines are well suited to the project site’s wind speeds and climate.

The turbine blades will be equipped with an advanced ice mitigation system to ensure a stable level of availability and reduced downtime. The parties have also agreed on a 25 year full-turbine maintenance and service contract.

The project, along with its sub-parks Kallamossen and Djupdal, are anticipated to generate adequate power for more than 200,000 Swedish households annually, and save around 1,000,000 tonnes of CO₂ over its lifetime.
