BP PLC (BP  ) disclosed the completion of a major technology upgrade at its Fowler Ridge 1 wind farm in Northwest Indiana for an investment of around $100 million.

The project involved the upgradation of 40 turbines, including installing 120 individual blades and 40 new nacelles.

The new Vestas turbines are projected to produce up to 40% more energy and are estimated to generate an average of 314,000 kilowatt-hours annually, which is enough renewable electricity to power around 27,000 homes.

"This project is a substantial upgrade for the wind farm and another investment in bp's low-carbon energy future. It shows bp's strategy in action - contributing to a more secure, affordable and lower carbon energy mix while pursuing our net zero ambition," said Orlando Alvarez, chairman and president, bp America.

Price Action: BP shares are trading higher by 0.94% at $35.94 on the last check Monday.
