GE Renewable Energy has announced a 1050MW order for Pattern Energy’s Western Spirit Wind farms in New Mexico, USA. The 377-turbine order will power the equivalent of more than 590,000 homes.
The agreement also includes a 10-year service agreement. Western Spirit Wind will utilise turbines ranging from 2.3-2.8MW in nameplate rating and will utilise various tower heights to optimise the wind capture for the project. Turbine deliveries have begun, with commercial operation planned before the end of 2021. GE Energy Consulting provided a range of power system and equipment studies to Pattern Energy supporting the new transmission line, substations, series capacitor bank, and wind farm being installed. GE Energy Financial Services underwrote and will provide a portion of the tax equity to the project.
