Houston-based EDP Renovaveis' subsidiary Horizon Wind Energy LLC – a wind project developer, owner and operator based in Houston – has opened the doors to its new office in Overland Park, Kan. Horizon is currently constructing the 201 MW Meridian Way Wind Farm in Concordia, Kan.
‘Horizon is proud to do business in the great state of Kansas and applauds the efforts taking place at Cloud County Community College to educate and train the next generation of wind technicians,’ says Ken Ripper, chief technical officer at Horizon Wind Energy. ‘The school currently has 50 students enrolled and is beginning a Web-based program. Horizon has hired some of these students as interns and full-time employees at our Meridian Way Wind Farm and is very pleased with the results.’
