The Musselshell team has earned my admiration and sincere thanks. Execution of the erection stage of this job has been among the best of any project I’ve had the pleasure to be associated with.

Located on a seven (7) square mile rocky ridge surrounded by mountainous terrain, the 21 MW Musselshell site consists of 14 1.5 MW turbines, powered by Goldwind’s proprietary, Permanent Magnet Direct Drive (PMDD) technology. Designed to maximize efficiency and substantially decrease maintenance costs, PMDD technology was used for the first time in the U.S. for the Shady Oaks Wind Project that Mortenson constructed for Goldwind in 2012.

Working with our VDC team, Mortenson created a best option alternative to allow this project to be built on extremely rugged terrain. Turbine pads and roads were optimized to create a best-fit solution.
