The wind turbines each have a rated output of 2.05 MW, a rotor diameter of 92 metres and a hub height of 80 metres. Due to the climatic conditions the turbines are equipped with the Hot Climate Option (HCO), which eases operation during the dry, hot summer months in that region of the country. The delivery and initial operation of the turbines is planned for the third and fourth quarters of 2012.
Andreas Nauen, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of REpower Systems SE emphasises: "We are pleased to announce our second largest U.S. project to date and supply the reliable MM92 turbines for what will be REpower’s first wind farm located in the south-central region of the country. In addition, I wish to thank the team of Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation for the support they provided during the negotiation process."
