Orsted Completes Willow Creek Wind & Takes FID on Western Trail Wind

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/30/2020, Location: North America

Willow Creek Wind is a 103MW project located in Butte County, South Dakota. As the second Orsted project in SPP (Southwest Power Pool) territory, it further diversifies the operational portfolio into a market which will play an important part of Orsted's growth in North America.

"The completion of Willow Creek Wind marks the successful transition of another safe, on-time, on-budget project in 2020 into our operational fleet, a solid team achievement given the COVID-19 impact across the industry this year," said Neil O'Donovan, Chief Operating Officer of Orsted's onshore business. "The team's adaptability and resilience in delivering the Willow Creek project during this challenging period while working with multiple new partners is particularly satisfying."

Willow Creek will generate new property tax revenue that can support local services and provide support to project landowners, who will receive long-term rental income by hosting the turbines.

BHE Renewables, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy Company, provided tax equity for Willow Creek as part of a portfolio with the 230MW Plum Creek project in Nebraska, which was commissioned in June this year.
Investment decision on Western Trail Wind
In addition, we have also strengthened our ERCOT asset base with the final investment decision of our largest onshore wind project to date, Western Trail Wind. Located near our Lockett Wind project, the 367MW project is expected to reach commercial operation in 2021.

With the completion of Willow Creek and addition of Western Trail Wind, Orsted’s onshore business now has 2.7GW in operation and under construction, growth of 2GW over the past 2 years.
