09-1197The proposed repowering of the Pleasant Valley Wind Project will consist of upgrading the existing 100 Vestas V100 turbines with Vestas V110, 2.2 MW turbines. Existing wind turbine towers will remain in place and be used for the installation of the new Vestas V110 turbines. Repowering of 86 of 100 existing turbines will involve the replacement of some components of the existing turbine nacelles and installing rotors with longer blades. The remaining 14 turbines will be repowered by replacing the entire turbine nacelle and a rotor with longer blades. New, larger turbine blades, coupled with upgraded generators will result in an increase of nominal production capacity of the Pleasant Valley Wind Project from 200 MW to 220 MW.06/21/2022 01:35 AM
