Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives announced a new wind energy project award valued at approximately USD 67 million. The award is for construction of the Richland Wind Farm in Sac County in western Iowa. The power generated by the 130-MW project’s planned 53 GE WTG turbines will be delivered into the Iowa electrical grid. Work on the Richland project is scheduled to begin in October with full operation by September 2020. The scope of IEA’s work includes all engineering, procurement and construction of project roads, WTG foundations, the MV collection system and the project substation.

Mr JP Roehm, IEA’s Chief Executive Officer said that “The Richland project demonstrates Iowa’s strong and ongoing commitment to wind energy. The state is already home to nearly 9,000 installed megawatts, and there are more than 1,100 additional megawatts currently under construction there.”

According to the American Wind Energy Association second-quarter market report, Iowa is second only to Texas in installed wind-generated megawatts. There were 8,957 MW of installed wind power capacity in Iowa as of June 30, the report said, with another 1,122 MW under construction.
