Siemens says it has received an order to supply 21 wind turbines to the Alexander wind project located 120 miles northwest of Wichita.
The Hutchinson-based company announced Thursday in a news release that it has reached a deal with NJR Clean Energy Ventures, a subsidiary of New Jersey Resources, for the 48-megawatt project in Kansas.
The $85 million Alexander wind farm is expected to be operational by this fall.
Siemens says the turbine’s generator housing, called a nacelle, will be assembled at its nearby facility in Hutchinson. The blades will be manufactured at its facility in Fort Madison, Iowa.
