The contract for the 300 MW Thunderhead wind farm went to Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives Inc., a construction company with specialized energy and civil expertise.
Chicago-based Invenergy is developing the Thunderhead Wind Energy Center in Antelope and Wheeler counties. It will have 108 turbines and the power will be delivered into the Nebraska electrical grid.
The project, which is being developed by Chicago-based Invenergy, will consist of 108 GE turbines with 300 MW of capacity. The power will be delivered into the Nebraska electrical grid.
Work on the project began in November, with completion scheduled for September 2020. The scope of IEA’s work includes construction of project access roads and turbine foundations, as well as erection of the turbines.
The company has assembled more than 7,200 wind turbines in various wind farm projects across North America.
