Tenaska has received commercial financing of $302m to support its Clear Creek Energy Center being constructed at Nodaway County in Missouri, US.
Danish wind energy company Vestas is providing 111 wind turbines and maintenance services for the 242MW Tenaska Clear Creek wind-power electric generation project. Mortenson has been contracted for engineering, procurement and construction activities.
Tenaska engineering and construction senior vice-president Nick Borman said: “The advanced technology and quality of Vestas wind turbines and Mortenson’s vast experience in wind farm construction, combined with Tenaska’s record of success in power plant development and operation, will help ensure that Tenaska Clear Creek is a safe and reliable generation facility.”
The company expects to begin commercial operations by the end of this year.
A 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) will see the supply of power to Associated Electric Cooperative, which caters to six regional cooperatives and 51 local cooperative systems in Missouri, southeast Iowa and northeast Oklahoma.
