Cordelio Power‘s 185-MW Glacier Sands wind project has reached commercial operations. The project, located in Mason County, Illinois, is composed of 43 Vestas V150-4.3 wind turbines and will sell 100% of its renewable energy under a 15-year contract with Microsoft.
“We’re excited to commence operations at Glacier Sands, the inaugural project in Cordelio’s new U.S. growth phase,” said Paul Rapp, chief operating officer of Cordelio. “We are grateful for the trust and support for the project by the county officials and the residents of Mason County, and we also appreciate the strong contributions of Vestas, White Construction, a subsidiary of Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives and K2 Management toward building this project.”
Simultaneously with commercial operations, the Glacier Sands project financing was completed.
