Innogy SE has started work on the 250-MW Scioto Ridge wind farm in Hardin and Logan counties, Ohio, the German company's first onshore wind project in the U.S.
"Only one year since acquiring a [2-GW] pipeline of onshore wind projects, we are now implementing our first wind farm in the U.S.," said Hans Bünting, COO of renewables at innogy. "With Scioto Ridge, innogy's successful US market entry becomes visible."
The facility will consist of 75 Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA wind turbines, which are expected to begin operation in the last quarter of 2020. The project represents more than $300 million of private investment.
Scioto Ridge holds a 13-year power contract with Amazon Web Services Inc., according to S&P Global Market Intelligence data.
