Logan’s Gap Wind commenced commercial operations in September 2015 and uses 87 American-made Siemens turbines to generate clean, renewable energy for Texas. The nacelles and hubs were manufactured in Kansas, the blades were made in Iowa, and a majority of the towers were built at Broadwind Energy in Abilene, Texas.
Blattner Energy managed project construction, which was completed in September of 2015. Approximately 550 workers were on-site during peak activity, with an average of 250 throughout construction. Local workers and subcontractors were involved to the greatest extent possible in all aspects of construction – from building access roads and turbine foundations to assembling and installing turbine components. A talented team of 11 full-time employees operate and maintain the facility, along with seasonal positions and the use of local contractors.
