Mortenson Construction has completed construction of the Two Dot wind project located in Two Dot, Montana. Owned by NJR Clean Energy Ventures (NJRCEV), an unregulated clean energy subsidiary of New Jersey Resources (NJR), the 9.73 MW project is the company’s first onshore wind project. It was energized early in June. The energy produced is sold to NorthWestern Energy (NWE) under a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
Mortenson was responsible for the design and construction of access roads, foundations, erection, underground electrical collection system, and a 100kV substation interconnecting into an adjacent Northwestern Energy (NWE) transmission line.The Two Dot wind farm is the fifth wind facility the renewable energy contractor has built in the state to date and its 135th wind project constructed since 1995.
“We are pleased to support NJR’s entry into the wind industry and to be part of the expansion of their renewable energy portfolio,” stated Tim Maag, VP and general manager of Mortenson’s Wind Energy Group. “We value our new partnership and their commitment to furthering the growth of our industry.”
