November 14 (Renewables Now) - Engie North America has ordered 494 MW of GE wind turbines for two projects in Oklahoma and South Dakota, GE Renewable Energy said on Wednesday.

The wind turbine maker will deliver 88 units of the 2.8-127 turbine for the King Plains wind project in Oklahoma, and 92 pieces of the 2.7-116 turbine for the first phase of the Triple H Wind project in South Dakota.

Construction of the two wind farms is already underway and both are planned to be switched on in the second half of next year.

The General Electric (NYSE:GE) unit said it has received 885 MW of turbine orders from Engie North America in the past year.

The manufacturer has delivered over 3 GW of turbine capacity in the US in 2018, accounting for 40% of the country’s total onshore wind additions.
