Mortenson was selected to construct the Vancouver-based Alterra Power Corporation, a leading global renewable energy company to construct the Shannon Wind Power Project, a 204 MW wind power project located in the Windthorst, Texas area. Mortenson’s scope of work includes the erection of 119 80-meter GE 1.7 MW turbines as well as access roads, foundations, collection, turbine erection, substation and transmission line installation on the 17 square mile site. In collaboration with our Civil and HVT Groups, Mortenson will be self-performing over 95% of the project. The project commenced physical construction on January 5, 2015 and completed later that year.
The Shannon Wind Power Project generates enough energy for approximately 61,000 households.
