“Scioto Ridge will make a big contribution to the achievement of Ohio’s renewables targets.”

SG 3.4-132 components for the project will be provided by Siemens Gamesa’s blade manufacturing facility in Fort Madison, Iowa and nacelle and hub assembly plant in Hutchinson, Kansas.

This product produces an output of 3.465MW and has a rotor diameter of 132m. It is claimed to offer high energy production with low noise emission levels.

Innogy Renewables US CEO Andrew Young said: “Only half a year after the successful acquisition of the more than 2,000MW US onshore pipeline and development team from EverPower and Terra Firma, we have now started executing our first US project. I am glad that we have been able to negotiate the turbine supply contract together with Siemens Gamesa.

“Scioto Ridge will make a big contribution to the achievement of Ohio’s Renewables targets. Once fully operational, our first US onshore wind farm will be capable of supplying the equivalent of more than 60,000 Ohio homes annually with renewable electricity.

So far, Siemens Gamesa has installed more than 18.7GW in capacity throughout the US. In Ohio, Siemens Gamesa has installed 200 wind turbines across two projects, totalling 400MW.
