Department of Energy Facebook

Wind energy industry leaders will create a new facility in the area.

Samsung Wind Energy and Group NIRE have signed an agreement to develop a wind power generation facility at Reese Technology Center.

The project will include two turbines, and the facility will be used to certify energy production capabilities for both models of turbines.

One turbine is a 2.3 megawatt, and the other is a 2.7 megawatt permanent magnet synchronous generator.

The agreement does not include Texas Tech at this time, but will be located near Tech’s Scaled Wind Farm Technology facility, which is a partnership between Sandia National Laboratories and Texas Tech.

The Reese Technology Center contains Tech’s 67-acre Wind Science Engineering Research facility, which is located just south of the site of the new Samsung-Group NIRE project.

Group NIRE is a for-profit subsidiary of The Institute, an independent public-private collaboration aimed at solving scientific and technological challenges facing the wind power industry.

“Texas Tech welcomes the addition of another wind turbine manufacturer at Reese Technology Center,” said John Schroeder, director of Texas Tech’s Wind Science and Engineering Research Center. “It further establishes Reese as a magnet for wind energy research and development and as a draw for original equipment manufacturing companies.
