GE Renewable Energy receives turbine supply contract from wpd

GE Renewable Energy has secured a contract from a German renewable energy firm wpd to supply onshore wind turbines for three wind farms in Germany. The company will deliver 16 turbines for the wind power facilities, with each turbine having 5.5 MW of capacity. The Bankewitz, Müssingen and Flinten wind farms are planned to be built at Landkreis Uelzen and will have a total installed capacity of 88MW. Bankewitz and Müssingen are expected to be commissioned and operational by the end of this year, while Flinten is due to come online in the first quarter of 2024.

GE Renewable Energy has signed a 15-year full-service contract for the turbines with the option to extend this by five years. A subsidiary of General Electric, GE Renewable Energy provides onshore and offshore wind, blades, hydropower, storage, utility-scale solar and grid solutions, as well as hybrid renewables and digital service offerings.

Earlier this month, Repsol awarded GE Renewable Energy a contract to construct wind turbines at six wind farms in Aragon, Spain. In accordance with the agreement, GE would provide 22 wind turbines, each with a 6.1MW capacity. The projects in the Santa Cruz I, Amp, II, and III, as well as the San Isidro I and II projects help compensate for the Delta II cluster, where the turbines will be installed.
