Sponsored by

Alstom signed a contract with PGE Energia Odnawialna S.A., worth about $108 million, for the supply of 30 ECO 110 wind turbines for the Lotnisko 90 MW wind farm, which will be based in Kopaniewo, Poland.

With a total output of 90 MW and scheduled for commissioning at the end of 2015, Lotnisko is one of the largest project in the Polish wind power industry, and the first wind power project implemented by Alstom in Poland.

The scope of the contract covers the project management, supply, erection and commissioning of 30 Alstom ECO 110 3 MW wind turbines equipped with a 360-foot diameter rotor, a 295-foot high steel tower, and a SCADA remote control system. Alstom will also provide turbines operation and maintenance for 2 years.

The ECO 110 is part of Alstom’s proven ECO 100 turbine platform. More than 130 turbines of this type have already been installed in Europe, including Spain, Great Britain, Turkey and Finland. All Alstom wind turbines are based upon the unique and proven Alstom Pure Torque rotor support concept that protects the drive train from deflection loads, ensuring higher reliability and lower maintenance costs.

Alstom builds and operates wind farms globally — more than 2,600 turbines are currently installed or under construction in more than 200 wind farms, delivering over 5,000 MW. Alstom designs and manufactures onshore and offshore wind turbines in a range from 1.67 MW to 6 MW, providing solutions for all geographical and climate conditions.
