A few years ago GE made a deal with German Juwi for 110 MW. But now the German developer is taking a step further and entering into a framework agreement with the US wind turbine manufacturer for 110 wind turbines this time. Final details have not been confirmed, however it will involve GE's 3.6 and 3.8 MW turbines, which will give a total capacity of between 396 and 418 MW.
"We have gotten to know GE as a trustworthy partner. The large-scale onshore turbine projects, which are being developed, fit in well with our project pipeline. The total package is highly competitive relative to a world of auctions," says Juwi's head of acquisitions, Maximilian Nowak, referring to the German developer's shift to a tender-based system for both onshore and offshore next year.
