San Francisco-based clean energy group, Clearway Energy has announced that it has signed agreements for Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy to supply Clearway over 1,400 MW of wind energy turbines over the last nine months. The Spanish wind energy major is providing varying wind turbine types to both build new projects and to repower existing projects in Oklahoma, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Clearway on these projects, which are a testament to a solid collaboration between both companies in the last year,” said José Antonio Miranda, CEO of Onshore Americas at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. “The repowering of the Wildorado and Elbow Creek projects is a major step in an exciting relationship with Clearway and a demonstration of confidence in Siemens Gamesa.”

This week Clearway announced the financial close of repowering both the Wildorado and Elbow Creek Wind Farms in Texas with Siemens Gamesa, which total 283 MW.  Wildorado and Elbow Creek were both signed in September 2018.

“We’re proud to be moving forward with our Repowering Partnership with Clearway Energy, Inc. and concurrently signing agreements for over 1.4 GW of new construction and repowering wind projects with Siemens Gamesa,” said Craig Cornelius, CEO of Clearway Energy Group. “In addition to getting started on these first repowering projects, we’re looking forward to advancing the balance of the projects planned under these agreements and seeing them through to completion over the coming years.”

Additional projects being developed by Clearway Energy Group include in the turbine arrangements feature the previously sold Mesquite Star project, currently under construction in Texas, and the proposed Rattlesnake Flat project in Washington.

In May, Clearway announced that it had closed financing and commenced construction on Mesquite Star, a 419 MW wind farm in Fischer and Nolan counties in Texas. The project will have a total of 118 wind turbines, supplied by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. As soon as the group closed the financing for the project, it issued a notice to its EPC partner Blattner Energy to begin construction of the project. The 419 MW wind farm is expected to begin commercial operation early next year.
