Wind Turbine Blades Arrive in U.S.

San Francisco, California [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] A shipment of blades manufactured in Europe for GE Energy arrived in the Port of San Francisco destined for enXco, Inc.’s existing wind operation near Rio Vista, California, where 90 smaller wind turbines are to be replaced with six 1.5 MW turbines, according to The CalTrade Report. They will partially re-power a project that, when completed late next month, will generate 9 MW of wind energy, enough to provide approximately 2,700 homes with electricity annually. Affiliated with an EU-based developer of renewable energy projects, enXco, Inc., develops, constructs, operates and manages wind energy projects throughout the U.S. The GE Energy shipment is the third of what the Report says will be many such break-bulk shipments in the future as California has committed to generate a full 20% of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2010.
