Rutland, Vt.-headquartered Catamount Energy Corp. has announced that its fourth U.S. wind project has been completed and attained full commercial operation on May 24. Sweetwater 4, located in Nolan County, Texas, is a 240.8 MW project using a combination of Siemens and Mitsubishi Wind turbines.

Sweetwater 4 is the fourth phase of the Sweetwater wind project, which totals 504.8 MW in operation today. The Sweetwater 4 wind project employs 135 Mitsubishi 1 MW turbines and 46 Siemens 2.3 MW turbines. Its output is being sold to San Antonio's CPS Energy, a municipally owned energy company, under a long-term purchase agreement, according to Catamount.

Prior to the project's commercial operation, Catamount Energy and its partner Babcock & Brown co-developed and constructed Sweetwater 4. Under the long-term ownership structure for Sweetwater 4, Catamount and Babcock will remain equity investors and co-managing members of the project. DKRW Energy LLC of Houston was the project originator and continues to co-develop the project.

"Sweetwater is one of the largest wind energy projects in America, and it will continue to expand," says Joe Cofelice, president of Catamount. "We are happy to have co-developed and to own, along with our partners, this project that helps to address the need for economically and environmentally sound clean energy."
