Global Wind Service finishes installation of Harvest Ridge


Global Wind Service recently finished installation at Harvest Ridge in Douglas County, Illinois. Vestas-American Wind Technology (Vestas) has contracted wind-turbine installation and service company Global Wind Service (GWS) to deliver crane and installation for the project. The C&I scope award included unloading, 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.

The wind farm consists of 48 wind turbines: 37 V150-4.3MW and 11 V136-3.78MW. The total capacity of the wind farm is 200 MW and is enough to power about 73,000 average households in Illinois with clean energy. The project ran over the winter and faced some challenging weather conditions as well as having to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. But the project team and partners finished the project in safe manner.
