GE wind turbine 2

Iberdrola has announced that construction is continuing at the 202-MW Baffin Wind farm in Kennedy County, Texas following road construction that began in November. The project is expected to reach commercial operation by the end of 2014.

The Baffin Wind Farm will add 101 Gamesa wind turbines and will be the third wind power project in Iberdrola’s Gulf Coast Complex. The three wind farms in the complex will produce a total of 606 MW and become Iberdrola’s largest renewable energy facility in the world.

In addition to the Baffin wind power project, Iberdrola Renewables has more than 500 MW in late-stage development that is on track to begin construction in 2013 or otherwise qualify for the renewable production tax credit.
