Juhl Wind to maintain two wind farms in Minnesota

Juhl Wind Inc. signed $900,000 maintenance services contracts for the recently completed Adams and Danielson wind farms in west central Minnesota. Both projects are rated at 40 MW of total capacity and cost $42 million.

The projects were completed and put into service in March 2011. Shortly after startup of each wind farm, Juhl received a contract to supply full-scale turbine maintenance services to each system for an initial 2-year term.

Each project uses twelve Alstom Eco 86 Wind Turbine Generators and Xcel Energy is buying the generated electricity under 20-year, 19.8 MW power purchase agreements for each project.

Juhl first announced the development of the Adams and Danielson wind farms in December 2009 and subsequently announced the beginning of construction in October 2010.
