Mortenson Construction's Renewable Energy Groups has started construction on the 161 MW Spinning Spur II wind project, located in Oldham County, Texas.

Situated on 27 square miles of farmland in the Texas Panhandle, the wind farm will comprise 87 1.85 MW, 80-meter GE turbines. Mortenson's overall scope of work will include engineering, procurement and construction of all access roads, foundations, wind turbine erection, collection system, operations and maintenance building, and the installation of meteorological towers.

Mortenson notes it will be the 21st project it has built in the Lone Star State to date and the 25th project for EDF EN North America in both the U.S. and Canada. Mortenson Renewable Energy Groups expects to hire approximately 200 people throughout the course of construction of the project, which is scheduled to be completed in May 2014.
