The 93-MW San Roman Wind Farm near Brownsville, Texas has officially entered commercial operation.
ACCIONA Energy served as the general contractor for the project’s development, and remains the owner and operator. The company estimates it now has 721 MW of total wind capacity in the United States.
San Roman is powered by 31 AW125/3000 turbines manufactured by Nordex and ACCIONA Windpower. Each turbine has a rotor diameter of 125 meters and is mounted on an 87.5-meter steel tower.
ACCIONA plans to invest $2.5 billion to increase the company’s worldwide renewable energy capacity to 1,900 MW by 2020.
