Alstom gets 90MW Poland deal

France's Alstom has signed a contract with PGE Energia Odnawialna worth about €80m ($109m) for the supply of 30 of its ECO110 wind turbines to the Lotnisko wind farm, close to the northern Polish village of Kopaniewo.

The 90MW wind farm is one of the largest projects in Poland and scheduled for commissioning at the end of 2015.

The contract covers project management, supply, erection and commissioning of the 3MW machines that come with a 110-metre-diameter rotor and a 90-metre-high steel tower. Alstom will also provide operation and maintenance for two years.

"A contract for the delivery of 30 wind turbines opens a new range in a long-term co-operation between our companies," says Krzysztof Müller, investments department director at PGE Energia Odnawialna.

"We are convinced that Alstom's competences in Poland in the conventional energy sector, combined with the proven technology represented by the ECO110 turbines, will translate into an efficient execution of the contract and guarantee Alstom a successful debut on the Polish wind market."

PGE aims at reaching at least 234MW in capacity from wind farms by 2016.

Alstom's onshore wind business will join GE of the US under the terms of the acquisition and partnership deal agreed earlier this week.
