Wind project developer Horizon Wind Energy LLC, a subsidiary of Energias de Portugal S.A., has signed wind turbine supply and service agreements with GE Energy for future U.S. projects. Horizon also announced the establishment of a regional headquarters in Albany, N.Y., to oversee its future projects in New York state and the northeastern U.S.

GE will supply Horizon with 201 1.5 MW wind turbines, to be shipped during 2010. Under a separate, two-year agreement, GE will provide operations support, parts and maintenance for those units.

"We see strong potential for future wind projects throughout this region, and our new Albany office positions us to better serve this promising market," says Antonio Martins da Costa, CEO of Horizon Wind Energy.
