GE has signed a contract with New Generation Power Texas to supply 235 turbines and related services for the developer's 400 MW Texas Wind Project.

Located in northwest Dallas, the project will feature 1.7-103 GE wind turbines. The machines are three-bladed, upwind, horizontal-axis turbines with a rotor diameter of 103 meters. According to NGP Texas, the large rotor and advanced design with a hub height of 80 meters will help deliver optimum energy output at the site.

NGP Texas began construction in December 2013, and the project will be built out over two phases. The developer says it expects the wind farm to be fully operational before the end of 2015 in order to qualify for the production tax credit.
