European investor to build Texas wind farm

by Andrea Waitrovich

European manufacturers Nordex and Vestas have won an order from Germany-based E.on to supply 76 wind turbines to the Bruenning’s Breeze project in Willacy County, Texas.

E.on said the project would be its 22nd in the United States, increasing its total installed capacity to more than 3 gigawatts.

The AW125/3000 turbines, from the portfolio acquired by Nordex in its takeover of Acciona Wind Power in 2016, will be installed in 2017, with commissioning expected by the end of the year.

As of July 2016, Nordex Group has installed a total of 2,380 megawatts of wind turbines in the United States, which is seen as one of the most important wind markets in the world. The outlook for wind energy in the United States was strengthened by the long-term extension of the federal Production Tax Credit in late 2015. With this policy in place, wind installations in the U.S. could grow by more than 10 gigawatts per year.
