The 45Mw project in Power County - Nordexâ€™ first project in Idaho - will use 18 of Nordexâ€™ N100 2.5 Mw turbines, and the contract includes delivery, installation, commissioning and testing of the turbines along with a maintenance and service agreement.
This is CGâ€™s first project as a developer and investor into a wind project in the United States, extending its activities beyond its widely recognized role as a substation, transmission engineering and EPC contractor. CG has completed grid interconnection for nearly 25 percent of all wind power installed in the USA.
This is the third order Nordex has received since the dedication of its new nacelle production plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas at the end of October. The fact that the turbines will be supplied from this facility is a key attraction for CG Power Solutions, which is committed to maximizing domestic content.
The Power County project is construction-ready, and delivery of turbines will begin in mid-May with construction scheduled to be completed by September 2011. The site is in southeast Idaho, approximately 10 miles south of American Falls and approximately 20 miles southwest of Pocatello.
Mark Scher, president of CG Power Solutions USA, said: â€œWe have been very impressed by the Nordex manufacturing facilities and their commitment to quality at every step. We are eager to get started utilizing this utility scale turbine, which offers a unique fit for this Idaho project.â€
Ralf Sigrist, president and CEO of Nordex USA, said: â€œWe are especially pleased that CG Power selected our turbines for this wind project, They bring their unique expertise and reputation as one of the top companies worldwide in transmission infrastructure to this project. We also look forward to possible future collaboration for mutual benefit and for the benefit of our customers and operators.â€
Will the move benefit CG Power?
