Located in Wayne County, Nebraska, USA, Haystack Wind utilises existing interconnection infrastructure in Southwest Power Pool (SPP) North from Ørsted's 230MW onshore wind farm Plum Creek Wind, which is placed close by.
Between the two projects, Ørsted has now invested over USD half a billion in the state of Nebraska. Haystack Wind, consisting of 5MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbines, becomes Ørsted’s second operating project in Nebraska and its third operating project in the SPP market. The wind farm has a capacity of 298 MW and is contracted by power purchase agreements with Hormel Foods, Target, and PepsiCo.
