WCN Editorial Team 15 May 2017 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Renewable Energy Systems (RES) has started construction on the Rattlesnake Wind Project in Texas, US after getting notice to proceed (NTP) from Goldwind Americas.

Goldwind, a subsidiary of Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology, acquired the 160MW project from RES in May 2016 and secured financing for the project from Berkshire Hathaway Energy and Citi.

Work will involve the installation of 64 Goldwind 2.5MW permanent magnet direct-drive (PMDD) 109m turbines. The project, deemed to be Goldwind’s largest in the US till date, will be constructed under a balance of plant agreement by RES.

Goldwind Americas CEO David Halligan said: “Goldwind Americas is proud to be working with RES to construct this milestone project, our first project in Texas and first tax equity financed project.”

RES CEO Ivor Catto said: “RES is proud to have already constructed nearly 15% of the total wind power capacity in Texas. Together, with Goldwind Americas, we are creating jobs, reducing emissions and delivering economic benefits to local communities.”
