Nordex to supply wind turbines for two wind farm projects in Iowa

The company will deliver 35 units of the N100/2500 turbine for the Hawkeye wind farm in Fayette County and Rippey wind farm in Green County.

These wind farms, with a total capacity of about 87.5MW, are expected to generate enough electricity to power about 39,000 homes.

The 37.5MW Hawkeye wind farm will include 15 turbines while the 50MW Rippey facility will include 20 turbines, and both projects are expected to begin commercial operation by October 2012.

Central Iowa Power Cooperative will buy the electricity generated by the two wind farms under a long term agreement.
