The Triventus project will be supported by the green certificate support system and when complete will produce enough clean electricity to power 7500 homes annually.

Expected to begin commercial operations in 2013, the wind turbines will be delivered by GE in the first and second quarter of the same year.

In addition to the supply contract, GE will also provide maintenance to the turbines as per a five-year service agreement.

"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," said Triventus Wind Power managing director Linda Palsson

.Swedish Wind Energy Association while most of the energy produced in Sweden is produced by nuclear power plants and hydroelectric facilities, to comply with the EU’s reneweables directive, the country is working to expand wind farm installations.
