Siemens announces that it will supply 21 wind turbines to NJR Clean Energy Ventures (NJRCEV), a subsidiary of New Jersey Resources (NJR), for the 48MW Alexander wind project, located in Rush, Kansas. A service and maintenance agreement was also signed to help ensure the turbines operate at optimal levels. NJRCEV is responsible for constructing, owning and operating the wind farm. The Alexander wind project is expected to be in operation in the fall of 2015.
According to a Siemens press release, the onshore wind power plant, located 120 miles northwest of Wichita, will produce energy for customers through PPAs (power purchasing agreements). The project's 21 SWT-2.3-108 wind turbines are part of Siemens G2 platform of onshore geared products – the bestselling wind turbine of Siemens installed portfolio in the Americas with rotor diameters optimized for all wind conditions.
