Wind power project to use Nordex turbines

Nordex USA Inc. will supply 34 wind turbines to Exelon Wind LLC for the Beebe Community Wind Farm in Michigan. The 81.6 MW wind farm will be the first major project worldwide and the first in the U.S. to use the Nordex N117/2400 turbine. The 2.4 MW turbines, on 91 meter towers, will be located on 21,000 acres near Ithaca, Mich.

The electricity generated by the project will be supplied to Consumers Energy (NYSE: CMS) under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Work will start on the site in May 2012 in preparation for delivery of the turbines beginning in September 2012. Nordex will be responsible for delivery, installation, commissioning and testing of the turbines and will provide ongoing maintenance under a 20-year service contract. Production of the turbine nacelles will take place at the Nordex manufacturing plant in Jonesboro, Ark.
