According to Escondido, Calif.-based enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, all 67 1.5 GE turbines in the 100.5 MW Grand Meadow Wind Project in Minnesota have been commissioned as of Dec. 31, 2008.

"The working relationship enXco has with Xcel Energy is outstanding and evidenced by the additional 351 MW we agreed to develop, build and sell to Xcel Energy during 2010 and 2011," says Tristan Grimbert, president and CEO of enXco. "Grand Meadow represents the first wind project built for Xcel Energy under a develop, build and sell agreement."

The project, developed by enXco Development Corp. and owned by Xcel Energy, was contracted in June 2007 with construction commencing in May 2008. enXco Service Corp. will provide operations and maintenance for the turbines and balance of plant equipment, as well as provide 24/7 remote monitoring and fault resets from its operations control center in Chandler, Minn.
