Mortenson Construction has announced that it has signed a deal to construct the 189 MW Rim Rock wind project for San Francisco-based developer NaturEner.

Located in Montana on nearly 21,000 acres approximately 20 miles north of NaturEner's Glacier I and II wind projects, which were also constructed by Mortenson, the Rim Rock project will generate energy to power approximately 66,000 homes, the company says.

Mortenson will be responsible for the design and construction of access roads and foundations; erection of 126 Acciona 1.5 MW turbines; and construction of the overhead and underground electrical collection system, 2 230 kV substations, the generator tie line and an operations and maintenance facility.

Construction is expected to be complete in October.
