Alstom has signed its first Polish wind power contract, which is worth approximately $109 million. Under the deal, Alstom will supply PGE Energia Odnawialna S.A. with 30 ECO110 wind turbines for the 90 MW Lotnisko wind farm in Kopaniewo.

The scope of the contract covers the project management, supply, erection and commissioning of the ECO110 wind turbines. The machines are equipped with a 110-meter diameter rotor, a 90 meter-high steel tower and a SCADA remote control system. The project is scheduled for commissioning at the end of 2015, and Alstom will also provide operations and maintenance for two years.

“Alstom is proud to contribute to the project, thus confirming our involvement in the development of the wind power sector and the effort to build a sustainable energy mix in Poland,” says Yves Rannou, senior vice president of Alstom’s wind business.
