Authorities in the US state of Oregon have now given the green light to the construction of wind farm Saddle Butte. This allows for the preliminary construction to begin for a wind farm with an expected capacity of 399 MW – and the likely supplier of the 113 turbines will be GE.

The project, which has been in the pipeline since 2009, will be developed by electricity producer Caithness Energy, which has previously ordered its turbines from the US manufacturer.
