GE Renewable Energy has been selected by Windkoepel Groen to repower part of the Windplan Groen project in Flevoland province in the Netherlands. Repowering involves replacing older units with new, higher capacity turbines or retrofitting them with more efficient components.
With 90 wind turbines across 11 wind parks and an estimated capacity of 500 MW, Windplan Groen is the largest onshore wind farm in the Netherlands in terms of production and installed capacity. GE will provide 26 Cypress 6.0-164 onshore wind turbines at three wind parks (Ansjovisstroom, Hanze, and XY Wind) with the total installed capacity of 156 MW. The three parks are expected to be completed in 2023. The agreement also includes a 25-year, full-service contract.
