Gamesa has entered into an agreement to sell its Chestnut Flats Wind Farm in Blair County to enXco, a company that operates and maintains wind farms throughout North America.

The 38-megawatt wind farm in Logan Township features 19 Gamesa turbines that each can generate two megawatts of electricity, said Gamesa, the Spanish wind energy company that has its U.S. headquarters in Middletown and a manufacturing facility in Falls.

“With the sale of the Chestnut Flats project to enXco, Gamesa continues to demonstrate our capabilities not just as a world leader in the manufacture of wind turbines but also as an industry leader in the development, construction and sale of wind farms here in North America,” Jiddu Tapia, Gamesa’s chief development officer for North America, said in a statement.

Financial terms of the sale weren’t disclosed. Ownership should be transferred to enXco by the end of the year.

Gamesa has two other wind farms in southwestern Pennsylvania, the 80-megawatt Allegheny Ridge and the 70-megawatt North Allegheny. It’s also constructing a 50-megawatt farm called Sandy Ridge. Approximately 40 percent of the state’s installed wind capacity comes from projects developed by Gamesa or built with Gamesa turbines, the company said.
