November 18 (Renewables Now) - Danish renewables company European Energy A/S has ordered turbines from GE’s Cypress onshore platform for 121 MW of wind projects in Lithuania, the manufacturer announced.
Under the deal, GE Renewable Energy will supply 22 units of the Cypress turbines that will be operated in a 5.5 MW mode. The machines will be powering three wind parks that European Energy will build about 80 km (49.7 miles) north of Vilnius.
The contract also includes a 25-year full-service agreement, the subsidiary of General Electric (NYSE:GE) said on Tuesday without providing the value of the order.
Installation of the machines, which will have a 158-metre (518.4-feet) rotor diameter, will be carried out in the second half of 2021. All of them will be mounted on 151-metre towers. Blades for the turbines will be made by GE’s unit LM Wind Power.
At present, Lithuania has 534 MW of installed wind turbine capacity in operation. The country has set a goal to produce 100% of its electricity from renewables by 2050.
