Global Wind Service (GWS), a wind turbine installation and service company, has completed installation on the Harvest Ridge wind project in Douglas County, Ill.
Vestas contracted GWS for the installation of the project. The C&I scope awarded included unload, pre-assembly, erection and mechanical completion of all turbines at the site – as well as delivery of all needed cranes and machinery for the work.
“We are very pleased that Vestas has chosen GWS as their preferred partner for complete wind turbine services once again. This manifests the great partnership we have built with Vestas over the years,” says Michael Nielsen, director at GWS.
The wind farm consists of 48 wind turbines – 37 V150-4.3 MW and 11 V136-3.78 MW – with a total capacity of approximately 200 MW. The project faced challenging weather conditions – as well as the COVID-19 pandemic – but nonetheless was finished on schedule.
The completion of the Harvest Ridge wind project follows the successful completion of the Bright Stalk wind project in 2019. The 57-turbine project included pre-assembly, installation and mechanical completion of the V136-3.6 turbines.
