Wind Turbines Selected for Pennsylvania Project

July 21, 2003 [SolarAccess.com]NEG Micon has been selected by FPL Energy to supply 20 wind turbines for the Meyersdale Wind Energy Center, located approximately 45 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in Somerset County. NEG Micon’s NM72C, a machine designed for medium to high-wind resource areas, features a 72-meter rotor and has an 80-meter tower. According to the company, once the 30 MW project is built, the NM72C machines will be the tallest wind turbines east of the Mississippi River. FPL Energy will build, own and operate the Meyersdale Wind Energy Center. The power produced at Meyersdale will be purchased by FirstEnergy Corporation. Construction of the wind energy center will begin later this summer with equipment delivery beginning in early September, with the entire wind farm expected to reach commercial operation by the end of 2003.
