Continuing a nearly decade-long relationship with Iowa-based MidAmerican Energy, Mortenson is finished with construction on the 100 MW Macksburg Wind Project, spanning more than 20 square miles. Mortenson provided EPC services for access roads, foundations, and electrical collection systems along with turbine erection and tower wiring of 43 Siemens turbines.
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 and completed in the fall of 2014.
