Work continues on wind farm

By Staff | Apr 27, 2009

Construction has resumed on Iberdrola Renewable’s Inc. wind farm in northern Pierce County, including pouring concrete to the tower foundations and building access roads to each tower site.

Work will eventually turn to erecting the mammoth wind tower bases and turbines – 71 in all. Those items are expected to arrive on site in late spring. Hundreds of workers will be involved in the construction scheduled to be completed later this year.

The wind farm will have the capability of generating 149 megawatts of electricity. Recently, the Iberdrola Renewables announced it has reached an agreement to sell 40 megawatts of power to Missouri River Energy Services of Sioux Falls, S.D.
