GE to supply 95 MW to Polish utility scale wind projects

38 of GE's 2.5 MW wind turbines will be used for projects in northern Poland, and the company will also build a service centre to provide long-term local support.

According to GE Wind, the 2.5 MW turbines (with 103m rotors and developed from GE's widely used 1.5 MW model) will be supplied to four locations, known collectively as Darlowo Wind Energy Centre – Phase Two. The installation is part of a larger renewable energy programme under development by Invenergy Wind - in collaboration with Polish development company Enerco and consisting of 9 wind projects in total.

Darlowo Phase One was fully commissioned in March 2011 and is currently producing 80 MW of power. Phase Two comprises projects at Boryszewo, Krupy, Stary Jaroslaw and Nowy Jaroslaw, bringing the total installed capacity at Darlowo to 175 MW. A further installation, Darlowo Phase Three, will see further turbines installed at Gorzyca and Pekanino, boosting the Darlowo installation to 250 MW.

Invenergy Wind is already well established in North America and Europe with large-scale renewable and clean energy generation facilities on both sides of the Atlantic. Based in Chicago it has offices throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe, and together with its affiliated companies has over 6,600 MW of wind, solar and thermal projects under contract, in construction or in operation.
