Elementum Energy has signed an agreement with GE Renewables for the delivery of 11 Cypress wind turbines, capable of producing up to 60 MW, for construction of Dnistrovska WPP Phase II in Odesa oblast. Cypress WTGs are GE’s most powerful onshore wind turbines, featuring the revolutionary two-piece blade design.
While we are polishing 10 GE WTGs of Dnistrovska WPP Phase I to start generating on the 1st of May 2021, preparations for the Phase II are in full swing. Last week Elementum has signed an agreement with GE Renewables for another 11 wind turbines, capable of producing up to 60 MW. Based on a proven professionalism of GE team, we are glad to be among the first companies to test the groundbreaking Cypress WTGs, GE’s most powerful onshore wind turbines, with unprecedented two-piece blades.
GE has come up with a way to make long wind blades (longer blades improve Annual Energy Production and help drive down Levelized Cost of Electricity) traffic-friendly. Cypress WTG’s rotor diameter is 158 m (hub height is 120.9 m), but its blades are supplied in two pieces that enables us to assemble them onsite and avoid some of the road hurdles that usually come along with such extremely oversized cargo.
We expect that Cypress WTGs will arrive on Dnistrovska WPP site in Oct-Dec 2021, and 5 of them will be installed by the end of the year. By Q2 of 2022, we will have all 100 MW of Dnistrovska WPP up and running.
