Alterra Power plans for 200-MW wind project in Texas

Acciona is planning for 100 Vestas’ V110-2.0-MW wind turbines. These turbines let developers increase productivity by opening up low-wind sites which were previously regarded as non-viable.

Alterra Power Corp. has announced the execution of several project contracts for the 200-MW Flat Top wind development project in central Texas. Contracts executed within the last week include:

Turbine supply agreement with Vestas-American Wind Technology to supply 100 V110-2.0 MW wind turbines — which are part of the Vestas 2-MW turbine platform, one of the most well-proven turbines in the industry;

A 10-year service and maintenance agreement with Vestas, which provides similar services at Alterra’s Dokie wind farm; and
Construction services agreement with Blattner Energy, a top-tier EPC contractor that built the nearby Logan’s Gap wind farm.

Alterra is also currently negotiating a power hedge as Flat Top’s primary revenue contract.

“The execution of these contracts positions us well to finance Flat Top and enter the primary construction phase later this year,” said Paul Rapp, Alterra’s VP of Wind. “We look forward to working with Vestas and Blattner as strong partners to ensure the project comes online successfully in the first half of 2018.”
