GE booked for Texan date
100 turbine order for 250MW Willow Springs wind farm
GE Renewable Energy has secured an order to supply turbines for the 250MW Willow Springs wind farm in Texas.
The company will deliver 100 2.5-116 machines to the project in Haskell County, it said.
Willow Springs is being developed by Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE), a unit of investment manager I Squared Capital.
The $330m wind farm has received project financing from Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Rabobank, according to the developer.
GE will support the facility under a 20-year extended full service agreement.
“We are delighted to build on our successful relationship with GE and are well-positioned to execute on our pipeline of more than 1000 megawatts of advanced-stage development projects across Texas and the Midwest," LCE chief executive Declan Flanagan said.
GE onshore wind chief executive Pete McCabe added: “Once Willow Springs is complete, GE will have commissioned 1363MW of wind capacity across six wind farms developed by LCE over four years.”
