RMT has been selected by Wind Capital Group to design and construct a 201MW Post Rock wind energy facility in central Kansas, US.

RMT will provide engineering, procurement, and civil and electrical infrastructure construction services to support the wind turbine installation at the facility, located in Lincoln and Ellsworth Counties.

The civil and electrical infrastructure includes roads, crane paths and pads, turbine foundations, an underground collector system, in-tower wiring, and the construction of two meteorological towers.

RMT will also oversee the mechanical turbine completion, tower erection, and testing and inspections.

RMT will begin construction on the power project in this year, and the facility will come online in the second half of next year.

In addition, Wind Capital Group has received the Kansas Corporation Commission approval for its power purchase agreement, to sell the electricity generated by the facility to Westar Energy.

The Post Rock wind facility is expected to provide enough electricity to power about 70,000 homes.
