innogy celebrates start of construction of its first onshore wind farm in the US: Scioto Ridge, a 250 megawatt project in Hardin and Logan Counties, Ohio. 75 Siemens Gamesa turbines are planned to commence operation in the fourth quarter of 2020. The total investment volume amounts to more than USD 300 million. Mr Hans Bünting, Chief Operating Officer of Renewables at innogy SE said that “Today is an important milestone for innogy. Only one year since acquiring a two gigawatt pipeline of onshore wind projects, we are now implementing our first wind farm in the US. With Scioto Ridge, innogy’s successful US market entry becomes visible. Ohio’s place in the heartland of the US offers ideal conditions for renewable energy and is considered as an attractive market for clean energy investment.”

He added that “Our growing team of more than 50 US-based innogy employees is driving our business growth across technologies, including onshore wind, offshore wind and solar. All of us at innogy are excited to deliver Scioto Ridge and continue with more long-term renewable energy investments in Ohio and other key US markets.”

Mr Jason Dagger, Scioto Ridge project manager at Innogy Renewables US LLC said that “Scioto Ridge will supply the equivalent of more than 60,000 Ohio homes annually with renewable electricity. The project represents a significant contribution to the area, injecting over $75 million in new revenues over the next 25 years to the local governments, school districts, and landowners. Over 100 Hardin and Logan County families will also directly benefit from the project. innogy is proud to be a member of this community.”

“Pre-construction activities have begun onsite, and commencement of full construction is planned for the third quarter of 2019. Once we are totally underway, Scioto Ridge will host over 150 short-term construction jobs and up to 10 full-time, long term operations jobs. This project is a win-win for the local economy.”
