Norwalk, Conn.-based EMCOR Group Inc.'s Trautman and Shreve subsidiary has been awarded a contract to install the mechanical and plumbing systems for the Vestas Wind Turbine Tower Manufacturing Campus in Pueblo, Colo.

Trautman and Shreve will be responsible for all of the mechanical and plumbing systems involved in Vestas' new 600,000 square-foot manufacturing facility. The company will install 2.4 million pounds of ductwork, including 8 miles of spiral and 2 miles of vacuum duct systems and over 20 miles of industrial gas, mechanical and plumbing piping.

Trautman and Shreve will additionally install 20 air-handling units on the roof of the facility. Compressed air piping will be installed in order to help power Vestas' manufacturing equipment.

Once the installation is complete, which is scheduled for the end of this year, the new manufacturing campus will be Vestas' largest facility and is expected to produce over 1,000 towers a year.
