Construction resumed today on Waverly wind turbine

WAVERLY, Iowa – Construction on Waverly Light and Power’s Cannon II wind turbine and Cannon I generator was scheduled to begin today.

The process should take approximately two weeks to complete, according to utility officials.

The new generator is necessary because the existing device failed.

Cannon II was erected nearly three years ago, but a construction issue caused the blades, hub and generator assembly to break apart and fall. In November, crews installed the second tower section and are now finishing the final piece and completing the turbine.

Litigation between Waverly Light and Power and Industrial Contract Services, the original contractor on Cannon II, is ongoing. A trial may begin in 2013.

According to Waverly Light and Power, the utility will use funds designated for renewable energy projects for reconstruction.
