Danish renewable energy company Ørsted has announced the completion of the 338MW Sage Draw wind project in Texas.

Spread across the Garza and Lynn counties, the wind farm is equipped with 120 wind turbines. It is expected to generate enough clean energy that will be sufficient to meet the electricity needs of 120,000 households in the US.

Ørsted executive vice-president and onshore business CEO Declan Flanagan said: “I’m very proud of the Ørsted team and our partners on this project who’ve done an excellent job with another safe, on-time, on-budget project delivery.”

With the Sage Draw wind farm entering into commercial operations phase, Ørsted’s onshore operational installed capacity has increased to 1.3GW.

In addition to the wind farm, Ørsted has an additional 0.8GW of onshore wind, solar, and storage projects. These are currently under construction and expected to become operational later this year and early 2021.

Flanagan added: “The safe completion of Sage Draw amidst the escalating COVID-19 crisis is a testament to the resilience and adaptiveness of the Ørsted team and key project partners at Blattner Energy and GE Renewable Energy as well as financial partners, GE Energy Financial Services and BHE Renewables.
