Leeward Renewable Energy (Leeward) has announced that work will soon commence to repower the company’s 15-year-old Mendota Hills Wind Farm (been in operation since 2003) in Lee County, Illinois, USA.

Leeward selected Siemens Gamesa to supply 29 of its SG 2.6-126 wind turbines, which will replace the existing 63 units of legacy Gamesa turbines. Total capacity will increase from roughly 50MW to 76MW. The full-scale repowering entails removing all existing wind turbine generators and replacing with new equipment. The project commences in March of 2018 and is scheduled for completion in December of 2018. Siemens Gamesa will continue to provide operations and maintenance for the Mendota site.
