France-based wind turbine manufacturer GE Renewable Energy has secured a wind turbine supply contract from Swedish renewable project developer OX2 for the Klevberget wind farm.
Located in Ånge, Sweden, the 146MW wind facility will be equipped with 24 of GE’s Cypress onshore wind turbine units.
GE Onshore Wind International chief commercial officer Gilan Sabatier said: “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 decarbonisation targets.”
GE’s Cypress range includes wind turbines with rotor diameters of 158m and 164m, whose capacities range from 4.8MW to 6.1MW.

The Klevberget wind farm will operate the Cypress turbines at 6.1MW. Each turbine will have a rotor diameter of 158m.
Installation works are scheduled to begin in the second quarter of next year, with the wind turbines due to be commissioned in the second half of 2023.
In addition, GE has signed a 35-year full-service contract with OX2.
OX2 CEO Paul Stormoen said: “We are very pleased to start the construction of the Klevberget wind farm, which 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 realising this project.”
Last October, GE Renewable Energy received a wind turbine order from Energie Eolienne du Maroc (EEM), a subsidiary of Nareva Holding.
Under the contract, GE agreed to deliver 40 of its Cypress onshore wind turbines for the 200MW Aftissat onshore wind farm.
The order was placed for an onshore wind farm extension in Morocco.
