October 2019

Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives will start work later this month on the 130MW Richland wind farm in Iowa under $67m construction contract.

The project, which is located in Sac County in western Iowa, will comprise 53 GE turbines.

It is expected online in September next year.

The scope of Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives’s work includes all engineering, procurement and construction of project roads, foundations, the MV collection system and the substation.

Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives chief executive JP Roehm said: “The Richland project demonstrates Iowa’s strong and ongoing commitment to wind energy.

“The state is already home to nearly 9000 installed megawatts, and there are more than 1100 additional megawatts currently under construction there.”
