Way Wind LLC has entered into a joint venture with Nordex USA Inc. for the co-development and subsequent construction of a wind farm in Wayne County, Neb.
The project was initiated in 2008 when Way Wind began securing land rights and performing wind studies. The partnership has allowed the project's planned size to expand from 99 MW to 120 MW.
The partnership has now moved forward with additional wind studies and will soon begin environmental and other surveys to support an upcoming application for approval for the project from the Nebraska Power Review Board, according to Nordex.
The project plans to use 48 Nordex 2.5 MW N100/2500 turbines, which the company will supply from its recently completed production facility in Jonesboro, Ark.
