Alstom’s ECO110 wind turbine

Under the €80m contract, Alstom will provide 30 ECO110 wind turbines for the wind farm based in Kopaniewo, Poland.

PGE Energia Odnawialna investments department director, Krzysztof Muller said, "We are convinced that Alstom competences in Poland in the conventional energy sector, combined with the proven technology represented by ECO110 turbines, will translate into an efficient execution of the contract and guarantee Alstom a successful debut on the Polish wind market."

The contract scope also includes project management, supply, erection and commissioning of 30 Alstom ECO110 3MW wind turbines, which will feature a 110m diameter rotor, a 90m high steel tower, and a SCADA remote control system.

Additionally, Alstom will provide turbines operation and maintenance for two years, as part of the contract.

Alstom Wind business senior vice president Yves Rannou said, "Alstom is proud to contribute to the project, thus confirming our involvement in the development of the wind power sector and the effort to build a sustainable energy mix in Poland."

Planned for commissioning at the end of 2015, Lotnisko wind farm is one of the largest project in the Polish wind power industry and is a part of PGE’s aim to reach at least 234MW of power from wind farms by 2016.
