Indianapolis-based Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives Inc. (IEA) has secured a new wind project contract.
The award is for the construction of the Neosho Ridge Wind facility in Neosho County, Kan. Apex Clean Energy is the lead developer of the project.
The approximately 300 MW wind farm is expected to provide enough energy to power up to 100,000 homes. The power generated by the project’s 139 Vestas turbines will be delivered into Kansas’ electrical grid.
Once IEA receives full notice to proceed, the scope of the company’s work will include wind turbine installation, public road maintenance, turbine access roads, MV collection system installation, and the construction of a high-voltage project substation and transmission line connecting the project to the electrical grid. Project work is scheduled to commence this month, and completion is expected in the fourth quarter of 2020.
To date, IEA has assembled more than 7,2000 wind turbines across North America.
