The 61 MW Kinangop Wind Farm in Kenya, developed by Aeolus Kenya and constructed by Iberdrola Engineering, will be powered by 38 GE 1.6 MW wind turbines.

GE will provide operations and maintenance for the wind farm through a full-service agreement with Kinangop Wind Park Ltd. for 10 years. The company also will train local technicians and provide technical advisory support for connecting the wind farm to the grid.

The facility will benefit from remote monitoring and diagnostics through GE’s global wind monitoring center in Salzbergen, Germany, which monitors wind turbines in Europe, Africa and Asia.
