CPV Renewable Energy Co., an affiliate of Competitive Power Ventures Inc., has completed construction and testing of its 152 MW Keenan II wind farm in Oklahoma.
Located on approximately 8,000 acres, the project is the second phase of a multi-phased wind generation project with a total build-out potential exceeding 350 MW. CPV developed and sold the 101 MW Keenan I wind farm to Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E) in September 2008.Â
The Keenan II project has secured a 20-year power purchase agreement with OG&E. In addition to CPV, the wind farm is co-owned by GE Energy Financial Services and Tyr Keenan II LLC, an indirect subsidiary of ITOCHU Corp. The project utilized 66 2.3 MW Siemens wind turbines.
In the coming year, CPV expects to complete construction of its 200 MW Ashley wind farm in Kansas and the 165 MW Cimarron wind farm in North Dakota.
