Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives (IEA) has announced a pair of wind energy project awards in Texas, USA. Together, the awards are valued at more than $115 million.
One award is for construction of the Raymond Wind Farm in Willacy and Cameron counties. The project’s planned 91 Vestas turbines will generate 200MW of power. The contract is valued at approximately US$ 53 million. The other award in Texas is for the West Raymond Wind Farm in Willacy, Hidalgo and Cameron counties. The approximate US$ 62 million project involves 109 Vestas turbines that will produce nearly 240MW of power.
The power generated by the two wind farms will be delivered into the Texas electrical grid. Work on both projects is scheduled to begin in December with full operation by December 2020. The scope of IEA’s work includes construction of project roads, WTG foundations, and erection of turbines.Both contracts were secured by IEA Constructors, a division of IEA. RWE Renewables Americas is lead developer on the projects.
