Sun Prairie, Wis.-based Wave Wind LLC says its recent deal with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) to purchase wind turbines will be mutually beneficial for both companies.
Wave Wind plans to purchase six 1.65 MW wind turbines from HHI. The wind turbines will be transported by Wave Wind from the Port of Houston to Wisconsin, where Wave Wind will assemble and erect them for a client.
Wave Wind says access to a new manufacturing partner will help it better serve its clients by diversifying its supply of wind turbines. The agreement is also a step towards expanding cooperation between Wave Wind and HHI. Wave Wind says the agreement will help HHI propel its entrance into the North American wind turbine market.
The wind turbines purchased by Wave Wind were manufactured at HHI's plant in Gunsan, South Korea and have a rotor diameter of 77 meters and a hub height of 80 meters. The turbines are expected to generate 10 MW of electricity.
