The wind farm is located 20 miles north of New Raymer in Weld County, CO, and is jointly owned by BP Wind Energy and Sempra Generation.

The power output from the wind farm will be purchased by the Xcel Energy company Public Service Company of Colorado, under a 25-year agreement.

Nordex was responsible for the wind turbine supply and commissioning and will continue to provide service and maintenance under a five-year contract.

The mile-high altitude required some special adaptations, including increasing the wind turbines’ heat exchanging capacity, Nordex says.
