Mortenson was selected by Brightman Energy, Harvest Energy Services, Inc., and First Reserve to construct Mariah del Norte Wind Project, a 230.4-megawatt wind farm located in Friona, TX. This will be the first wind project constructed for this group of customers.
The 230.4 MW project consists of 96-GE 2.4 MW turbines. Our scope of work includes county road upgrades, access roads, foundations, erection, collection system, substation, 3,600 SF O&M building, and 1 met tower. We will also self-perform all civil and HVT work. The project commenced in mid-March and has an estimated completion date of December 31, 2016. The Mariah del Norte Wind Energy project will generate enough energy to power 69,120 households. With the completion of this project, Mortenson will have installed 4,509 MW of clean energy in the state of Texas alone.
