The Lockett wind farm, which broke ground in December 2018, is capable of generating 700,000 MWh of wind power to meet the electricity consumption of 70,000 homes. The wind farm in Wilbarger is equipped with 75 GE wind turbines, each having a capacity of 2.45MW.
Commenting on the commissioning of the Lockett Wind project, Declan Flanagan – Lincoln Clean Energy CEO, said: “I am proud of the LCE team and our wider Ørsted colleagues in completing another safe, on time and on budget construction project, and to cross the milestone of a gigawatt operating portfolio.”
Lincoln Clean Energy was acquired by Ørsted last year for $580 million. The company now boasts of installing more than 1GW of wind generation in the US to go along with 1.3GW of capacity in construction and in late-state development in the US.
Some of the major wind farms of Lincoln Clean Energy apart from the Lockett Wind project are the 253MW Amazon wind farm in Texas, which has been operating since 2017, the 230MW Electra Wind Project in Texas, which went online in 2016, the 300MW Jumbo Road Wind Project which has been operating since 2015 in Texas, the 230MW Horse Creek Wind Project in Texas commissioned in 2016 and others.
Last month, Lincoln Clean Energy purchased the South Dakota Wind Project – a 103MW under construction ready wind project in Butte County, South Dakota, from Pattern Energy Group, for an undisclosed price. The South Dakota Wind Project is slated to be commissioned in Q4 2020.
