    Tatanka Wind Farm

    Largest wind farm by ACCIONA in the United States, operational since 2008.

    The Tatanka Wind Farm, operational since 2008, was ACCIONA's first large installation in the United States, on a particularly challenging site between the states of North and South Dakota, due to its harsh winter conditions and its geographical isolation. It was also the first wind farm in the country to use ACCIONA Windpower technology turbines.

    Mt Gellibrand Wind Farm

    Winchelsea, Victoria (Australia)

    Most of the land around Mount Gellibrand is privately owned and used for sheep farming. The plains are generally very flat, with a number of permanent lakes and wetlands, and also windy, making them an ideal site for a wind farm.
