ACCIONA Windpower is supplying one hundred AW 116/3000 wind turbines for a wind power project in Texas.
The wind turbines will be installed at the 300-MW Green Pastures wind complex, which is located on more than 18,000 acres in Baylor and Knox Counties in North Texas. They are equipped with 116-meter-diameter rotors and will be mounted on 92-meter-high steel towers.
The first phase, with a capacity of 150-MW, is expected to reach operation in March 2015. Capital Dynamics, who will manage the project, and Prudential Capital Group previously completed the financing for the first phase. ACCIONA Windpower will also provide operation and maintenance services for 10 years.
