0 30

On Tuesday, GE Renewable Energy announced that OX2 has chosen it as the supplier for the 146 MW Klevberget wind farm in Ange, Sweden. The project, which includes a 35-year full-service contract and will feature 24 turbines from GE’s Cypress onshore wind platform, will be GE’s fifth Cypress project with OX2.

The Cypress turbines will generate 6.1 MW and have a rotor diameter of 158 meters in the Swedish wind farm. The wind turbines will be installed at the project site in Q2 2023, and the turbines will be fully commissioned and operating in the second half of 2023.

“OX2 is one of the biggest developers of wind farms in the Nordic region, and we are thrilled they’ve selected our most powerful onshore wind turbine for this fifth wind farm. In partnership with OX2, we will deliver even more affordable and sustainable renewable energy to Sweden, helping the country to reach its ambitious decarbonization targets,”

Gilan Sabatier, GE’s Chief Commercial Officer for Onshore Wind International, commented. 

“We are very pleased to start the construction of the Klevberget wind farm that will contribute a considerable amount of renewable energy in Sweden. The turbines, as well as the long-term commitment from GE, is an important part of realizing this project,”

Paul Stormoen, CEO of OX2 said. 

Wind turbines with rotor diameters of 158 and 164 meters, varied hub heights, and power ratings ranging from 4.8 to 6.1 MW are part of the Cypress platform. It comes with single-piece and jointed blade options, making logistics easier and increasing productivity from difficult-to-reach locations. GE Renewable Energy has received over 7 GW of orders for its Cypress turbines since its launch in several locations across the world.

By supporting the work of its clients, GE Renewable Energy is committed to enabling the energy transition. As part of that obligation, the company is focused on delivering and managing a global fleet of renewable energy assets, lowering the cost of renewable energy, assuring grid resiliency, efficiency, and dependability, and improving the dispatchability of renewable energy. GE Renewable Energy also contributes to the energy transition by following a strategy based on a commitment to circular, sustainable design.
