NAW has learned that Joe Baker, the chief executive officer of ACCIONA Windpower North America, has resigned. Enrique Teruel has been named as Baker's replacement.

Teruel, who has worked at ACCIONA Windpower since 2002, has held several positions at ACCIONA, including serving as global director of operations, a post he has held since 2009. The company also notes that Teruel supported the startup of ACCIONA's North American unit.

ACCIONA declined to give specifics on the circumstances regarding Baker's resignation only noting he resigned for "personal reasons."

In other company news, ACCIONA says that it has finalized agreements that bring the total footprint for its AW3000 turbine to 1 GW. The company notes that in 2013, it has completed over 500 MW of orders to supply AW3000 wind turbines to projects in North and South America.

ACCIONA installed a 116-meter rotor option for the AW3000 in 2011 and recently launched a 125-meter rotor option for low-wind sites.
