PGE Energia to acquire GE Turbines for Polish wind farm

GE is planning to provide PGE Energia Natury PEW with 16 2.5-100 wind turbines for its new Karwice Wind Farm located at Darłowo, Poland.

The turbines are capable to produce a total power output of 40 MW, which can generate the equivalent power needed for 35,000 European homes.

These wind turbines form a part of a turnkey project between PGE Energia Natury PEW and a consortium of Aldesa Nowa Energia and Aldesa Construcciones. The wind farm will supply power into Poland’s 110-kilovolt Sianow-Slawno transmission line.

Adding wind power to Poland’s energy sector will help the growing electricity demand of Poland as well as invite more economic benefits along with security, investments, industrialization and creation of jobs.

The 16 turbines provided by the company will add to the current Poland installed base of 155 units with an increase in the total output power capabilities to 372 MW, said, Cliff Harris, general manager, GE’s renewable section, Europe.

In addition, GE will provide the Karwice facility with a 24/7 remote monitoring and diagnostics through the global wind monitoring center in Salzbergen, Germany.
