Acciona supplies wind turbines for 300 MW wind power project in Texas

Renewable energy firm Acciona Windpower has begun the supply of one hundred AW 116/3000 wind turbines for a wind power complex in Texas managed by the global asset manager, Capital Dynamics.

The wind turbines will be installed in the Green Pastures wind energy complex, which is located on over 18,000 acres in Baylor and Knox Counties in North Texas. They are equipped with 116-meter-diameter rotors, which provide optimum performance within a wide range of wind speeds, and will be mounted on 92-meter-high steel towers.

Supplies have already begun and the first phase, with a capacity of 150 MW, is expected to be operational in March 2015. Capital Dynamics and Prudential Capital Group have already completed the financing for this first phase of the Green Pastures wind complex. Acciona Windpower will also provide operation and maintenance services for 10 years.

Acciona Windpower has signed contracts for the sale of AW 3000 wind turbines in Brazil, the United States, Mexico, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, Chile and Poland. This contract means that Acciona Windpower will accumulate more than 1,200 MW supplied or contracted for wind farms in the U.S., in different models of its 1.5 and 3 MW capacity platforms.
