Alstom will supply wind turbines for a 217MW extension to the Whitelee wind farm in Scotland to be built by Spain’s Iberdrola Renovables.

Under the €200m ($257m) contract, Alstom will install 69 ECO 100 wind turbines with 3MW unit capacity and six ECO 74 wind turbines with a 1.67MW unit capacity for the project.

The extension will become fully operational in May 2012.

The Whitelee wind farm extension is one of the largest onshore wind power projects in Europe and represents the first large-scale project for Alstom’s powerful ECO 100 wind turbine.
