GE Renewable Energy has won a 121MW turbine order for its Cypress platform for wind projects in Lithuania. European Energy placed the order for 22 units that will be installed across three wind farm sites. The installation of the wind turbines will take place in the second half of 2021. The deal includes a 25-year service contract The wind farm projects are located about 80km north of the capital Vilnius. When operational they will add 23% of green power capacity to the country’s current wind power production. European Energy will operate the Cypress turbines at 5.5MW hosted on 151 metre high towers. European Energy chief executive Knud Erik Andersen said: “We are delighted to sign this important deal with GE Renewable Energy thereby ensuring 22 state-of-the-art Cypress turbines perfectly designed for our three Lithuanian projects. “This deal will ensure 121MW of green power capacity and be central to driving the green transition and support the local production of renewable energy in a country currently heavily dependent on the import of energy.” According to the Lithuanian wind power association, Lvea, Lithuania has a goal to produce 100% of the country’s electricity from renewable sources by 2050. There are currently 23 wind parks operating in Lithuania with a combined capacity of 480MW.
