Continuing a nearly decade-long relationship with Iowa-based MidAmerican Energy, Mortenson’s High Voltage Transmission Group recently finished constructing BOP services for 265.7 miles of electrical collection systems along with tower wiring of 43 Siemens turbines on the Macksburg Project. The project mobilized in November 2013 to perform initial construction activities that meet time-critical goals for completing foundation construction prior to the end of 2013. With such a tight time frame between selection and mobilization, the team planned to develop an execution strategy to ensure our commitment was made to MidAmerican. Following a winter shutdown period, work resumed in the spring of 2014 a with completion date of October 2014. This project will provide energy for over 13,000 homes.
