General Electric Company (GE) has signed a contract with a Swedish energy developer Triventus Wind Power to provide ten units of 2.75-103wind turbines for a 27.5MW wind farm project being built near Falkenberg on Sweden’s west coast.

The electricity produced from this project is enough to meet power demands of over 7,500 houses in the region.

GE Energy will deliver the wind turbines during the first and second quarters of 2013 and will also provide maintenance support to the units under a five-year service agreement.

The wind project is slated to commence commercial service in the second quarter of 2013.

Triventus Wind Power MD Linda Pålsson said, "Given Sweden’s need to expand the role of wind energy, GE’s wind turbine technology has a proven track record of reliability and efficiency to ensure our project is successfully implemented on schedule."
