GE will transport, install and commission the turbines for the wind farm during 2013. The farm will be located in Fredriksdal, which is south of Nässjö.
The 1.6-100 wind turbines have blades and towers extending to 100 meters, which is equivalent to 33 stories. According to GE, the turbine offers a 47 percent increase in swept area over previous megawatt class models, resulting in a 19 percent increase in annual energy production at 7.5-meters-per-second wind speed.
Fredriksdal Energi AB is a fully-owned subsidiary of Stena Renewable AB.
