US energy company Tenaska said Monday its 242-MW wind farm in the state of Missouri is fully up and running.
The wind farm, named Tenaska Clear Creek Energy Center, achieved commercial operation on May 4.
Tenaska said the project involved an investment of more than USD 300 million (EUR 276.5m) in the regional economy.
The wind farm is located north of Maryville, the seat of Nodaway County. It features 111 turbines supplied by Danish manufacturer Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS). Vestas is also providing maintenance services.
US company Mortenson served as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the project.
Tenaska Clear Creek operates under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Missouri-based Associated Electric Cooperative Inc, which supplies wholesale power to six regional cooperatives.
The wind farm is owned by Tenaska Clear Creek Wind LLC, a company that groups affiliates of Tenaska and grid operator Bright Canyon Energy.
