CROATIA: GE has won a contract to supply a 34MW project in Croatia, its first turbine order in the country.

Austrian developer RP Global has chosen GE's 2.85-103 turbines for its Rudine project near the southern city of Dubrovnik.

The American conglomerate will also provide operations and maintenance services at the project for 15 years.

With the US wind market continuing to prove unstable, GE signalled last year that it would renew its focus on the European market.

Speaking this September at the WindEnergy 2014 conference in Hamburg, GE Europe general manager for renewables Cliff Harris reinforced this view. He said GE is continuing its efforts to develop its wind business in eastern Europe.

Croatia has an installed wind capacity of 227MW, with 86MW coming online last year. As a member of the EU, the country must comply with binding renewable-energy targets. However, a ban on the construction of wind projects along much of its coastline has hindered progress.
