GE to Repower Leeward’s Aragonne Wind Project in New Mexico
GE Renewable Energy has been selected by Leeward Renewable Energy LLC as its wind turbine technology partner to repower its 90 MW Aragonne Wind Project in Guadalupe County in New Mexico. When combined with the new greenfield 145 MW Aragonne Mesa Wind project, the total wind farm output will increase to 235 MW.
As a part of this effort, GE will be providing a total of 86 2.x-127 and 2.3-116 wind turbine generators (WTG) to Leeward. The Aragonne Wind repower will replace the project’s 90 existing units with new WTG technology, resulting in increased performance and reliability. The projects are anticipated to be completed in late 2021.
