DeWind Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME), has acquired the rights to an initial 160 MW portion of the Novus wind project from developer Novus Windpower LLC.
The Novus project is located in the Oklahoma Panhandle and is expected to be 370 MW when fully developed. DeWind is actively moving forward to break ground by the middle of this year for the first phase of the project, currently earmarked for commercial operation in early 2012.
DeWind will install 40 of its 2 MW D9.2 wind turbines for the 80 MW Phase I portion of the project, while future phases may utilize new DeWind models currently under development, according to the company. Turbines will be furnished from DeWind assembly contractor TECO-Westinghouse, located in Round Rock, Texas.
