Spanish renewable energy company Acciona Energía has commenced commercial operation of its 93MW San Román windfarm project in Cameron County, Texas.

The new plant features 31 AW125 / 3000 turbines of Nordex / Acciona Windpower technology. It will generate enough renewable energy to cater to the electricity demands of approximately 30,000 households every year in the US.

Acciona Energy's North America director Ilya Hartmann said: “We are very pleased to have successfully completed a windfarm that represents the reactivation of our investment activity in the US, where we plan to extend our project portfolio and increase our presence in the second windpower market in the world.”

Construction took 11 months and it has been delivered on time. Mounted on steel towers with a hub height of 87.5m, the new turbines have 125m diameter rotors and are suitable for low-turbulent areas with medium winds.

Being Acciona Energy’s eighth windfarm in the US, the San Román facility will take the company’s wind generation capacity in the country to 721MW.

Acciona Energy also has another three farms with a total power generation capacity of 329MW in Oklahoma, as well as a 180MW project in North and South Dakota, a 101MW plant in Illinois, a 12MW plant in North Dakota, and a 6MW plant in Iowa, US.
