The manufacturer will install 21 SWT-2.3-108 turbines on the Alexander wind project in Rush, 190 kilometres north west of Wichita. Siemens will also provide servicing and maintenance at the project for an undisclosed period.
The nacelles for this project will be assembled at Siemens' nearby facility in Hutchinson, Kansas. The blades will be manufactured at the company's blade facility in Fort Madison, Iowa.
NJR Clean Energy Ventures, which is a subsidiary of New Jersey Resources, has agreed a 25MW power purchase agreement (PPA) with Kansas City Board of Public Utilities, and a 23MW PPA with Yahoo. The developer bought the project from OwnEnergy in October.
The manufacturer recently hit the 10GW installed capacity milestone in the Americas, with 5,600 installed wind turbines in Canada, the US and Latin America. Nearly 5,000 wind turbines are installed in the US.
