BP Wind Energy has commenced the construction of its Trinity Hills wind farm in Archer and Young counties in Texas, US.
Upon completion, the wind farm will be capable of generating 225MW of electricity, sufficient to power 65,000 homes.
The 90 turbines installed in the plant are the Clipper Windpower C-96 wind turbines, each with a rated capacity of 2.5 MW.
Blattner Energy has been selected for the balance-of-plant contract.
Energy generated from the wind farm will be delivered into Oncor’s new Garvey Road substation via a four-mile electrical T-line from the project’s substation.
Upon completion, the power generated from the farm will be delivered into the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas transmission system and sold on the wholesale power market.
Two wind farms developed by the company became operational in 2008 while the third is expected to begin commercial operation by the end of 2011.
