Michigan utility Consumers Energy says that the first batch of wind turbines has started to arrive at its 105 MW Cross Winds Energy Park, located in Tuscola County, Mich.

According to Consumers, nearly all of the projects' access roads and more than half of turbine foundations have been completed at the $255 million wind farm. Southfield, Mich.-based Barton Malow is the lead contractor at the site.

In agreement with the Tuscola County Road Commission, the project includes necessary maintenance, repair and upgrades to several area roads needed for transporting wind turbine components and other construction-related materials.

The Cross Winds project will be powered by 62 wind turbines when it begins generating power late this year. Duke Energy Renewable Services will provide operations and maintenance services, the utility notes.
