Ørsted Unveils 518 MW Helena Energy Center in Texas


Ørsted has completed the Helena Energy Center situated in Bee County, South Texas. It is a combined wind and solar project with a total capacity of 518 MW. The wind and solar centre is now fully operational and will produce enough renewable energy to power over 110,000 homes and businesses annually in Texas.

Furthermore, the Helena Energy Center consists of the 268 MW wind farm Helena Wind and the 250 MWAC solar farm Sparta Solar. It has secured contracts with multiple corporate offtakers. During the construction of the project, it provided 500 construction jobs and will create operations and maintenance jobs for decades. 

In April 2024, ENGIE agreed to purchase Ostwind France, including its subsidiaries OSTWIND International S.A.S. and OSTWIND Engineering S.A., from Ørsted. This acquisition encompasses Ørsted’s onshore wind and solar business in France. The deal is expected to conclude in the second quarter of 2024. With this Ørsted exited the French renewables market.
