GE has signed an agreement with Pathfinder Renewable Wind Energy to supply wind turbines and provide technology for Pathfinder’s Wyoming wind power projects.
Pathfinder, a Wyoming wind energy developer, is one of three wind developers to be allocated transmission capacity on TransCanada’s 3,000MW Zephyr Power Transmission project, with an allocation of 2100MW.
The proposed Zephyr project is a 1,000 mile, 500kV, high voltage direct current line designed to move 3,000MW of wind-generated electricity from Wyoming to power markets in the southwest US.
Jeff Meyer, managing partner of Pathfinder, said: ”Pathfinder approaches the development of Wyoming’s wind resources from the perspective of a ranching landowner. We’ve found the GE team to be responsive and creative in supporting Pathfinder’s unique vision for wind energy development in the Western US.”
