Construction recently began on a new wind farm in the Alsleben-Schackstedt region of Germany, 70 kilometres northwest of Leipzig. It will feature 37 GE 1.5MW wind turbines and will add 55.5MW of installed wind power capacity to the country’s electricity grid. The project was developed by EAB Technology Group and recently acquired by GE Energy Financial Services in its third investment in wind power generation in Germany. Over the coming years, GE Energy Financial Services intends to increase its investment in Europe’s growing energy markets, particularly in high quality renewable energy projects such as wind power. EAB Technology Group, the project developer and construction manager, will continue as technical advisor. GE Energy’s Wind Energy Unit will provide installation and maintenance services for the project on a long-term basis.
