Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives has announced a wind energy project award in Illinois, USA. The award is for construction of the Blooming Grove Wind Energy Center in McLean County.
The project’s planned 94 turbines will generate an estimated 250 megawatts of power that will be delivered into the Illinois electrical grid. Work began in September 2019 and the project is expected to be fully operational in late 2020. The scope of IEA’s work includes construction of project roads, turbine foundations, and erection of turbines. White Construction, a division of IEA that performs the construction of heavy civil infrastructure projects, secured the contract and Invenergy developed the Blooming Grove project.
