ACCIONA Windpower, the wind turbine manufacturing subsidiary of ACCIONA Group, has signed a contract to supply 100 of its AW 116/3000 3-MW turbines for two unidentified projects in Texas. The 300 MW agreement totals more than $400 million and also covers the operation and maintenance over 10 years.

The turbines, with a rotor diameter of 116 meters, will be installed on 92-meter steel towers. Deliveries will begin in 2014, and the two wind farms are expected to be fully operational in 2015.

ACCIONA Windpower notes that this contract means the company has now supplied or signed contracts for 1.5 MW and 3 MW turbines totaling over 1.2 GW in the U.S.
