Clipper Windpower PLC announced that under a supply agreement with UPC Wind, eight of the company's first commercially available 2.5-MW Liberty wind turbines will be utilized in the Steel Winds Wind Farm, the first wind power project to be built on the U.S. shores of Lake Erie.

Located just south of Buffalo, N.Y., in the suburb of Lackawanna, the project is currently under development by UPC Wind and its partner BQ Energy. Sited along the Lake Erie shoreline, the project will provide for the redevelopment of land long occupied by an abandoned steel mill. Completion is expected by year-end 2006.

"We're delighted to feature some of our first Liberty wind turbines as a part of this milestone wind energy project," says James G.P. Dehlsen, Clipper's chairman and CEO. "Built in America's heartland, the turbines will be helping to restore beauty and economic development to the local area as they bring new clean, sustainable energy to the people of New York."

Under the terms of the agreement, in addition to wind turbine supply, Clipper will provide wind turbine installation supervision and operations and maintenance services for a period of five years. The agreement secures some of the first commercially available Clipper 2.5-MW Liberty wind turbines currently being assembled at the company's plant in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
