Danish wind energy giant à˜rsted announced the completion of its largest onshore wind project to date — the Western Trail Wind Farm, a 130-turbine, 367MW project in North Texas.

The company also secured long-term power purchase agreements with PepsiCo, Hormel Foods, and Nucor for much of the power generated from the project.

“Western Trail Wind is a well-sited greenfield development project that will provide low-cost, reliable power to the Texas grid,” said Philip Moore, senior vice president of à˜rsted Onshore. “I’m very proud of our team working on this project as we continue to scale the business and play a leading role in the US energy transition.

The Western Trail Wind Farm is located on property owned by American billionaire Stan Kroenke in Vernon, Texas.

à˜rsted said PepsiCo and Hormel Foods will also purchase power from the forthcoming Haystack Wind project due online in Nebraska later this year.
