Cielo Wind Power announced Wednesday it will install and operate the first three wind turbines produced by South Korean powerhouse Samsung Heavy Industries.
Austin-based Cielo has developed four wind farms in the region, and Samsung is most noted for building ships.
Cielo will install the turbines, with serial numbers 1, 2 and 3, by 2011 near Lubbock, said President Walt Hornaday. Texas Tech University will provide access to wind research and development staff.
