Coastal wind farm in Sweden to use GE wind turbines

Salzbergen, Germany, July 2, 2012 — Swedish energy developer Triventus Wind Power AB will use GE's wind turbine technology to power a new 27.5 MW wind farm project being built near Falkenberg on Sweden's west coast.

GE will supply Triventus with 10 of its 2.75-103 wind turbines. When it begins operating, the wind farm will generate enough renewable electricity to power the equivalent of 7,500 houses in Sweden. Like other Swedish wind farms, the Triventus project will be supported through the country's green certificate support system.

Most of Sweden's domestically generated energy traditionally has been produced by nuclear power plants and hydroelectric facilities. However, to comply with the European Union's Renewables Directive, Sweden is working to expand wind farm installations throughout the country, according to the Swedish Wind Energy Association.

GE Energy will deliver the wind turbines to the project site during the first and second quarters of 2013. The wind farm is scheduled to begin commercial service in the second quarter of 2013. GE Energy also will provide maintenance support to the units under a five-year service agreement.
