Siemens Energy’s Fort Madison, Iowa, facility will manufacture all the blades, and the nacelles and hubs will be assembled at the Siemens plant in Kansas.

All projects will utilize Siemens’ 2.3-MW, G2 platform wind turbines and will be installed at MidAmerican Energy’s 500-MW Highland wind project, the 250-MW Lundgren wind project, the 138.6-MW Wellsburg wind project, and the 117-MW Macksburg wind project.

MidAmerican Energy’s order also included 19 wind turbines for the 44-MW Vienna II wind project expansion.
