GE Energy will provide 18 wind turbines for the first wind farm in Estonia.

The Atlanta-based energy company is selling nine turbines each to the two Estonian firms partnering to operate the Paldiski Wind Farm. The deal also includes a 10-year service agreement.

The wind farm is expected to add 45 megawatts of clean power to the energy grid in the Baltic country, which borders Russia and Latvia in northeastern Europe. Estonia had 149 megawatts of wind-power capacity installed by the end of 2010, with 570 megawatts currently in the works, according to a news release.

GE Energy announced July 14 that it would sell 10 turbines to the operators of the first wind farm in Vietnam‘s Mekong Delta region.
