Vattenfall and SwifterwinT have announced that they have selected GE Renewable Energy to supply 24 Cypress onshore wind turbine units for the Windplanblauw wind farm located in central Netherlands. The 132 MW project is the first wind turbine order ever signed between GE and Vattenfall. The agreement also includes a 25-year full-service contract.

Vattenfall and SwifterwinT will operate the Cypress turbines at 5.5 MW, with a rotor diameter of 158m and blades provided by LM Wind Power, a GE Renewable Energy business. The project will produce enough power to supply electricity to the equivalent of more than 130,000 households per year.

SwifterwinT is a unique local initiative gathering more than 170 agricultural entrepreneurs and residents located on the shores of lake IJsselmeer. Together with their partner Vattenfall, the local community has invested in the Windplanblauw project. Part of the revenues of the wind farm will be deposited in a fund for the benefit of the inhabitants of the Dronten and Lelystad municipalities.

“We look forward to working together and making this project a success – one more step towards our goal of fossil free living within one generation” said Sandra Grauers Nillson, head of onshore Wind at Vattenfall.
