Pattern Energy Group LP has acquired the 283-megawatt (MW) Gulf Wind project from Babcock & Brown. Gulf Wind includes 118 wind turbines and is located on the Gulf Coast in Kenedy County, Texas. The project is in close proximity to transmission lines that allow for the efficient delivery of power to nearby markets.

Pattern was formed as an independent company eight months ago and now has nearly 400 MW of premium wind projects in operation or under construction across North America, counting the addition of Gulf Wind.
