The 336MW Escalade wind farm in Truscott, Texas, was inaugurated by Taaleri Energia, AIP Management (AIP), and Akuo.
The first Vestas V162 wind turbine to be installed in North America will be part of the project.
According to Taaleri Energia, the Vestas V162 EnVentus offers a wide range of conventional hub heights and operating modes that may be paired with a wide range of technological alternatives to build tailored solutions to meet the requirements of each distinct project.
Twenty Vestas V150 4.2MW turbines and 45 Vestas V162 5.6MW turbines make up the entire Escalade project.
About 1270 GWh of power are produced there annually.
Kai Rintala, Managing director of Taaleri Energia, stated “We are extremely proud of the Escalade wind farm.”
“The onshore wind resource in Texas is excellent and the location of the wind farm, with connections to the large population centres, is also ideal.”
“The fact that we developed this project in-house and succeeded in bringing on board such high calibre partners, co-investors and financiers is a testament to the strength of our development, engineering and investment capabilities.”
