Mortenson's Wind Energy Group was selected by MidAmerican Energy Company (MEC) to construct Ida Grove Wind Project, a 300 MW project. This was the 12th project constructed for the customer.
Construction commenced in late April 2016 with and completed later that year in December.
Our scope of work included access roads, foundations, UG collection and the erection of 120-GE 2.3 MW and 14-GE 1.79 MW turbines.
With the completion of Ida Grove and O’Brien, Mortenson has installed nearly 3,400 MW of clean energy in the state of Iowa alone, which is 55% of all wind energy installed in Iowa.
