(HUTCHINSON, Kan.)—Workers at Siemens Energy, a plant in Hutchinson, will build portions of wind turbines for a project in the northwest United States.
Siemens has an order from Portland General Electric company, a public utility in Oregon.
Hutchinson workers will build the nacelles and hubs for 116 wind turbines. Crews will start installing the wind turbines in 2014. Once the project is completed, it's expected to generate enough power for 84,000 households.
