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.

Aristeo worked on site for over a year in good and nasty weather and through it all the company and all employees maintained a positive and professional attitude. Everybody I spoke with stated they would be very happy to see Aristeo return at any time for another project. Greater Gratiot Development, Inc.
