Kansas Wind Business Booming

KSAL StaffJanuary 23, 2015

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.
