Nordex USA, Inc. has announced the completion of the largest project ever undertaken by Nordex Group. The 60 N90/2500 wind turbines at Cedar Creek 2 are commissioned.
The wind farm, 20 miles north of New Raymer in Weld County in northeastern Colorado, is jointly owned by BP Wind Energy and Sempra Generation. The power produced by this 150MW project has been purchased by Public Service Company of Colorado, an Xcel Energy company, under a 25-year agreement. Nordex was responsible for the turbine supply and commissioning and will continue to provide service and maintenance under a 5-year contract. The mile-high altitude required some special adaptations, including increasing the turbines’ heat exchanging capacity.
