USA - Minnesota Power’s Bison 1 Wind Energy Center completed in North Dakota

Renewable energy is flowing from Minnesota Power’s newest wind farm near New Salem, N.D., where the company has commissioned 15 state-of-the-art wind turbines, completing its Bison 1 Wind Energy Center

Commissioning of the last Bison 1B turbine was completed Jan. 31 by personnel from Minnesota Power, a division of ALLETE, Inc., and its primary contractor and turbine supplier, Siemens.

Bison 1A, the first phase of the 82-megawatt (MW) installation, was completed about a year ago and has been producing renewable energy since then.

Midway through construction of Bison 1A, which consists of 16 turbines rated at 2.3MW, Minnesota Power decided to deploy upgraded 3MW Siemens turbines featuring direct drive power units. Bison 1B will deliver more wind energy for approximately the same cost as Bison 1A.

Work is well underway on Minnesota Power’s Bison 2 and Bison 3 wind farms, located adjacent to the Bison 1 installation in Oliver and Morton Counties. Bison 2 and 3 will each consist of 35 of the Siemens 3-MW direct-drive wind turbines, and together they’ll supply an additional 210 MW of renewable energy.

Work on Bison 2 & 3 continues with favorable fall and winter weather allowing solid progress on roads, foundations and balance of plant systems in support of a planned end of 2012 completion. In approving Minnesota Power’s long-term resource plan last May, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission ordered the company to strongly consider adding more wind to its renewable portfolio before the expiration of federal production tax credits on December 31, 2012.
