DeWind completes construction on 20MW US wind farm

US-based DeWind has completed the commissioning activities and achieved commercial operation at the 20MW Frisco wind farm in the North Texas panhandle.


The project includes ten units of DeWind D8.2 wind turbines featuring the company's 2.0 MW D8.2 platform.


DeWind president and CEO Robert Rugh said the completion of the US wind farm marks the latest achievement in the overall installation of the DeWind D8.2 wind turbine technology, while further showcasing the technology and demonstrating the capabilities of the D8.2 architecture.


"The Frisco Wind Farm also serves as the precursor to additional DeWind turbine installations slated for North America during 2012," said Rugh.


An annual nominal average of about 39,726.5 tonnes of CO2 emissions will be reduced through this project and provide enough electricity to power almost 6,000 average American households.


The Frisco Wind Farm will add more than 1,600MW to DeWind's global installed base, representing the company's single largest US-based operating project till date.


The DeWind D8.2 wind turbines were assembled at their Round Rock, Texas facility, by the company's manufacturing subcontractor, TECO-Westinghouse.


The company stated that its 2.0 MW turbines provide grid-friendly power to a variety of locations in Europe, Asia, South America and North America.


Additional projects utilizing DeWind turbines are slated for completion during 2012, with DeWind's North American installed base reaching 200MW by the end of the year.
