GE Renewable Energy has announced the signature of a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to sell energy from the 175MW Björkvattnet Onshore Wind Farm to Google. GE Renewable Energy originated and negotiated the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to sell the majority of the power generated by the wind farm to match the consumption of Google’s data centers in the region with renewable energy.
GE Renewable Energy announced
earlier in September that it will supply 33 of its 5.3MW Cypress turbines for the Björkvattnet Onshore Wind Farm in Sweden. The project was developed by Vindparken and WindSpace, with support from GE Renewable Energy, and sold to InfraVia European Fund IV, managed by InfraVia Capital Partners, a private equity firm specialised in the infrastructure sector. The wind farm is expected to reach commercial operations by the end of 2020.
