Feb 18, 2020, 09:30 /Comserve / -- OX2 chooses to partner with GE Renewable Energy and enters into a contract to secure the supply of Cypress onshore wind turbines.
OX2 Group AB, a renewable energy company has recently selected GE Renewable Energy as its partner, wherein GE Renewable Energy would be involved in the supply of Cypress wind turbines for the onshore wind farm located in Finland.
At least 24 Cypress wind turbines would be supplied for the 132 MW Metsalamminkangas onshore wind farm project. It is the first deal for GE Renewable Energy in Onshore Wind farm in Finland, using its Cypress Platform.
The acquisition of Metsalamminkangas wind farm project in North Ostrobothnia in July 2019 was completed by OX2 from Lahi Tuuli Oy, a Finnish developer of wind power sources that has its operations all over Europe.
Peter Wells, the Chief Executive Officer of GE Europe Onshore Wind had mentioned that OX2 had been one of the largest developers of wind farms in the Nordic region and that he was delighted to see that GE’s new Cypress Platform had been chosen by OX2. Further, he commented that the primary aim of the company was to help their customers lower energy costs every day. Additionally, he added that Cypress was the best platform that could make optimal use of the wind speed as well as the landscape of the country.
The facility is anticipated to produce about 400 GW/h of clean energy every year, considering its nominal capacity to be about 132 MW. This could provide electricity to at least 80,000 homes in Finland.
Being one of the biggest wind power projects in Finland, the Cypress Platform belonging to GE Renewable Energy would be the first to include Metsalamminkangas project in the region.
Lundin Petroleum, an end-user as well as the owner is expected to take over the operations of the wind farm upon completion of the work related to the project.
In addition to the above, GE Renewable Energy has contracted that it would be providing a multi-year service for the turbines that would contain a two-piece blade design as supplied by LM Wind Power, which is also a part of GE’s Renewable Energy business. Further, as most of the months in a year are faced with cold conditions, GE’s ice mitigation system would be used at the wind facility to resist against such cold conditions for most parts of a year.
The installation of wind turbines is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2021, followed by the wind farm that would be starting its operations during the latter half of 2021.
