GE Renewable Energy announced today that it has been selected by Leeward Renewable Energy, LLC (Leeward) as its wind turbine technology partner to repower its 90 MW Aragonne Wind Project in Guadalupe County, New Mexico. When combined with the new greenfield 145 MW Aragonne Mesa Wind project, the total wind farm output will increase to 235 MW.

As a part of this effort, GE will be providing a total of 86 2.x-127 and 2.3-116 wind turbine generators (WTG) to Leeward. The Aragonne Wind repower will replace the projects 90 existing units with new WTG technology, resulting in increased performance and reliability. The projects are anticipated to be completed in late 2021.

Aragonne is GEs third new WTG supply contract with Leeward in the last 24 monthstotaling nearly 500 MWfollowing agreements for Mountain Breeze Wind in Colorado and Lone Tree Wind in Illinois, which were both completed in 2020.
