RWE continues to expand its renewables portfolio in North America, one of the company’s strategy focus markets: Cranell wind farm, a 220-megawatt project, located in Texas, has achieved commercial operation. The project is powered by 100 Vestas 2.2 MW turbines and will have the capacity to generate enough electricity to power more than 66,000 homes. With the addition of Cranell, RWE operates 25 onshore wind farms in the U.S. with a total installed capacity of more than 4,200 MW (RWE’s pro rata share is about 3,600 MW). The project represents an investment of $250 million.

Cranell is the second of RWE’s U.S. onshore wind projects to come online this year with a remarkable safety record, going more than 434,000 work hours without a recordable safety incident. Already in March, Peyton Creek (151 MW), also in Texas, achieved commercial operation after completing construction incident-free.

RWE has at the moment almost 1 GW of further onshore wind farms under construction in the US. The projects are located in Texas, Oklahoma, Ohio and New York State.
