ENGIE North America has chosen GE Renewable Energy to supply 180 wind turbines for two projects: 88 2.8-127 turbines for the King Plains wind project in Oklahoma, and 92 2.7-116 turbines for the first phase of the Triple H Wind project in South Dakota.
Construction on the projects began this year, and both projects are expected to reach commercial operation in the second half of 2020. With these latest projects, ENGIE North America has contracted with GE Renewable Energy for 885 MW of new wind turbines in the past year.
“We’re delighted to partner with ENGIE on these projects,” says Vikas Anand, GE Renewable Energy’s CEO for onshore wind, Americas. “Our best-selling 2 MW turbines are a great fit for Engie’s needs, and we’re proud to help bring additional clean, affordable, renewable energy to their customers in Oklahoma and South Dakota.”
