Tuesday, April 16, 2019
ALLETE Clean Energy has received the 45th set of new wind turbine blades from international blade manufacturer Tecsis for its refurbishment initiative at Storm Lake and Lake Benton wind facilities in Iowa and Minnesota.
The wholly owned division of ALLETE Inc. announced an $80 million project in August 2017 that includes replacing select blades, gearboxes and generators on turbines at the Lake Benton wind site in Lincoln County, Minnesota, and the Storm Lake I and II wind sites in Buena Vista and Cherokee counties, Iowa. The project will improve turbine performance and reliability, generate federal production tax credits at each site and support the renewal of power sale agreements at the Storm Lake sites. Tecsis will provide more than 300 blades, using the latest design and manufacturing technology to drive improved wind turbine generator performance.
