Minnesota-headquartered Blattner Energy has announced a new milestone: The company now has 30,000 MW of wind power installed or under contract across North America.
According to Blattner, this accounts for approximately one-third of all installed wind power capacity in the U.S. and Canada.
The milestone is supported by the wind power portfolio of Blattner; its sister company, D.H. Blattner & Sons Inc.; and Canadian joint-venture operation Borea Construction ULC. Blattner says its family of companies has built more than 250 wind projects since 2001, including the six single-largest wind farms in the U.S.
Blattner Energy, a diversified power generation contractor, provides engineering, procurement and construction services for wind, solar, energy storage and power delivery projects.
The 30,000 MW milestone includes more than 15,900 turbines installed; more than 5,000 miles of turbine access roads constructed; approximately 900 miles of transmission line installed; and more than 100 substations ranging from 69 kV-500 kV.
