• Turbine Supply, Service Agreements Total Approximately $750 Million;
• 2011 and 2012 Projects to Generate 560 Megawatts of Clean Electrical Power.

Total value of the equipment orders and a five-year services agreement is approximately $750 million.

GE’s wind turbines will generate more than 560 megawatts of electrical power for the projects. BP Wind Energy placed two wind turbine orders with GE—the first for 88 units and second for 262—for delivery in 2011 and 2012, respectively. BP Wind Energy’s Mehoopany Wind Farm, about 20 miles from Scranton, Pa., will use GE’s 1.6-82.5 technology. Flat Ridge 2 Wind Farm will be built using 262 GE 1.6-100 wind turbines and will be located 43 miles southwest of Wichita, Kan. The equipment portion of the Flat Ridge 2 contract was part of the $1.5 billion in wind turbine orders and commitments announced by GE on September 20.

“As we continue to aggressively expand our U.S. wind energy project portfolio, we are pleased to be working with our colleagues at GE, a company with whom we have a long-term strategic relationship that delivers proven wind turbine technology and competitive maintenance contracts,” said John Graham, president and CEO, BP Wind Energy. “To date, about 30 percent of our wind fleet is powered by GE wind turbines and we are delighted to once again be partnering with GE to deliver affordable, renewable electricity that enhances this nation’s energy security and independence.”

“We continue to see strong demand for our advanced wind turbine technology because of its capability to meet the economic and environmental priorities of operators like BP Wind Energy,” said Victor Abate, vice president of renewables for GE Power & Water. “We have been supporting BP Wind Energy projects since 2007 and welcome the opportunity to participate in this latest series of projects, which will help to build additional momentum for wind power in the United States.”

GE’s 1.6-100 wind turbine, selected for the BP Wind Energy’s Flat Ridge 2 project, is designed for increased performance and is the world’s most efficient wind turbine in its class. With blades and towers that extend 100 meters, equivalent to the height of a 35-story building, the 1.6-100 captures additional wind energy. GE has received more than two gigawatts in orders for the 1.6-100 wind turbine since it was commercially introduced earlier this year.

The GE wind turbines chosen for the Mehoopany site feature an 82.5 meter rotor for class III wind conditions. Both advanced technology machines build on the success and the global experience of GE’s 1.5-MW wind turbine, the industry’s most widely deployed megawatt-class machine with more than 17,000 installed worldwide.
