General Electric (GE) opened the Paldiski Wind Farm on the Pakri peninsula in northwestern Estonia. With 18 GE 2.5-100 wind turbines, the Paldiski Wind Farm marks the commercial debut of the company’s wind turbine technology in Estonia.
To ensure successful operation and maintenance support, the wind farm is supported by a 10-year full service agreement from GE, which includes advanced anomaly detection, unplanned maintenance and an availability guarantee.
Thanks to strong winds coming off the Baltic Sea and the installation of the Paldiski Wind Farm, Estonia saw growing demand wind power last year. Estonia erected a record number of wind turbines last year with a total capacity of 86 MW that led to the overall capacity of 269 MW.
