Siemens says it has received an order to supply 21 wind turbines to the Alexander wind project, 120 miles northwest of Wichita.

The Hutchinson-based company says it has reached a deal with NJR Clean Energy Ventures for the 48-megawatt project.

The $85 million-dollar wind farm is expected to be operational by this fall.

The turbine's generator housing will be assembled at its facility in Hutchinson, and the blades will be manufactured in Fort Madison, Iowa.
