Online PR News – 15-September-2010 – – Alstom has secured an order worth over Euro 200 million from Scottish Power Renewables (SPR), a subsidiary of the Spanish energy group Iberdrola Renovables, to build a 217 MW extension to the Whitelee wind farm in Scotland. Under the terms of the agreement, Alstom will install 69 ECO 100 wind turbines, each with an output of 3 MW, and six ECO 74 wind turbines, each with an output of 1.67 MW, to be fully operational in May 2012.

“This order represents a major technological milestone, while strengthening our relationship with SPR and, of course, with Iberdrola Renovables, for whom Alstom has installed six wind farm projects in Europe totalling 185 MW” says Alfonso Faubel, Vice President of Alstom Wind. “This also proves that Alstom can, and does, take enormous steps to protect the environment.”

The Whitelee wind farm extension is one of the largest onshore wind power projects in Europe, and represents the first large scale project for Alstom’s powerful ECO 100 wind turbine, a major milestone for the company. The order also signifies Alstom’s continued commitment to the growing UK renewable energy market.
