GE sells wind turbines to French wind power project

GE 2.75-120 WIND TURBINE PEPWR

General Electric (GE) said its 2.75-120 wind turbines would be used in a new wind farm project near Crosey Le Grand, in the Franche Comté region of France.

Developed by Opale Energies Naturelles on behalf of Velocita Energies, the installation will contribute to the region’s objective of harnessing 600 MW of wind power by 2020.

GE will supply the site with five 2.75-120 wind turbines along with a full service agreement. The 13.75-MW project will be the first in France to use the 2.75-120 model, a unit that will allow developers to enter low-wind regions.

The Monts du Lomont project is the first time GE and Velocita Energies have worked together to implement a renewable energy solution. Shipment of the wind turbines will occur in the third quarter of 2015 with commercial operation expected to begin in late 2015.

Velocita Energy Developments Ltd. was established in 2011 to finance the development, construction, ownership and operation of utility-scale renewable energy projects in several countries in Europe.
