Madison, Wis.-based RMT Inc., a developer of wind energy projects, has completed construction of Michigan Wind I, located near Ubly, Mich.

With a total capacity of 69 MW, Michigan Wind I is the largest commercial-scale wind farm in Michigan. The wind facility began commercial operation in mid-December.

As balance of plant contractor for Michigan Wind I, RMT's WindConnect team provided construction of the civil and electrical services for the site, including erecting 46 1.5 MW GE SLE wind turbines and constructing the substation, collector system, access roads, crane pads and crane paths, tower foundations and associated civil infrastructure.

John Deere Renewables acquired Michigan Wind I from Noble Environmental Power in October 2008.
