The Pinnebog Windpark, near Bad Axe, MI, consists of 30 wind turbine generators that stand 96 meters tall at the turbine hub.  

Aristeo’s Balance of Plant (BOP) contract with DTE energy includes the construction of access roads, turbine foundations, turbine erection, installation of the electrical collection system, tower wiring, site restoration, and the expansion of the existing Pinnebog Substation. Each foundation contains over 440 CY of concrete and includes approximately 40 tons of reinforcing steel.

The electrical collection system will transmit the turbine generated power back to the wind park substations at 34.5kV. Voltage will ultimately be stepped up to 345kV for the interconnection with the Michigan Thumb Loop transmission system.

A projects’ success is directly proportional to the quality of the people on its team. I was lucky enough to be working with some of the absolute best. Every employee from the top on down was proactive, demonstrated safety awareness, exceptional job skills, and was willing to do what it takes to get the job done. General Motors Corporation
