Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge utilizes 65 American-made wind turbines. The turbine blades were manufactured at the Siemens factory in Ft. Madison, Iowa and the nacelles at the Siemens factory in Hutchinson, Kansas. The turbine towers were made in Wisconsin by Broadwind and in Michigan by Ventower. The pad-mount transformers for the project will come from the Siemens facility in Richland, Mississippi.
