Danish power company Ørsted has announced the completion of its Sage Draw Wind project, a 338MW wind farm located in Garza and Lynn Counties in the US state of Texas.
Featuring 120 wind turbines, the project will generate enough electricity to meet the annual needs of 120,000 American homes.
The completion of the Sage Draw wind project brings the Danish firm’s onshore operational installed capacity to 1.3GW. It also forms part of Ørsted’s plan to reach 5GW installed onshore capacity by 2025.
Currently, Ørsted has an additional 0.8GW of onshore wind, solar, and storage projects under construction and scheduled to commence operations in late 2020 and early 2021.
Ørsted executive vice president and CEO of Onshore business Declan Flanagan said: “I’m very proud of the Ørsted team and our partners on this project who’ve done an excellent job with another safe, on-time, on-budget project delivery.”
Flanagan added: “The safe completion of Sage Draw amidst the escalating COVID-19 crisis is a testament to the resilience and adaptiveness of the Ørsted team and key project partners at Blattner Energy and GE Renewable Energy as well as financial partners, GE Energy Financial Services and BHE Renewables.
