The first five turbines will be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year for the project Brunsmo at the Karlskrona site. All the turbines will be produced at the GE factory in the German town of Salzbergen. According to GE, the 2.5xl is designed for use in areas where weak winds prevail and is thus well-suited to the forested region in South Sweden.
