Mortenson's Wind Energy Group was selected by MidAmerican Energy Company (MEC) to construct Ida Grove Wind Project, a 300-megawatt 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. Once complete, the project will provide clean energy for approximately 90,000 households.
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.
