Indianapolis-based Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives Inc. has picked up a new client.

The infrastructure construction company will put its specialized energy and civil expertise to use when working on the Neosho Ridge Wind project in Neosho County, Kansas— an approximate 300-megawatt project that is expected to use 139 Vestas turbines to create enough energy to power up to 100,000 homes.

Upon receiving its Full Notice to Proceed, IEA will begin working on the wind turbine installation, public road maintenance, turbine access roads, MV collection system installation and the construction of a high voltage project substation and transmission line connecting the project to the electrical grid.

“The Neosho Ridge Wind project is an excellent example of the continued strong demand for clean energy and the ongoing opportunities we see as the leader in the wind construction business,” said IEA CEO J.P. Roehm.

Apex Clean Energy, which develops, constructs and operates utility-scale wind and solar power facilities across North America, is the lead developer on the project.

Project work is scheduled to commence in August 2019 and completion is expected in the fourth quarter of 2020.
