Madison, Wis., Jan. 24, 2012 — RMT, Inc., a renewable energy engineering, procurement and construction contractor specializing in the design and construction of wind and solar energy generating facilities, has provided engineering, procurement and infrastructure construction for about 1,100 MW of renewable energy during 2011.

These projects bring RMT's total EPC renewable energy portfolio to over 5,000 MW.

In 2011, RMT performed utility-scale wind energy design, engineering and construction for 13 projects. These projects, ranging in size from 1.5 MW to 150 MW, were located in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Kansas, Michigan, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont and Washington.

RMT's work on these sites has included providing engineering, procurement, and civil and electrical infrastructure construction to support the installation of the wind turbines. This involves roads, crane paths and pads, turbine foundations, underground collector systems, in-tower wiring, mechanical turbine completion, tower erection and testing and inspections.

RMT also completed design and construction of eight utility-scale solar photovoltaic projects totaling 55 MWp during 2011. These projects ranged in capacity from 2 MWp to 20 MWp. In addition to full procurement and installation, RMT designed the site layouts, foundations, DC and AC collector systems, and SCADA systems, and performed the electrical system studies/designs required for interconnection to the utilities' systems.

RMT entered the renewable energy market in 1996, designing and building wind energy facilities. More recently, the company has expanded its EPC offering to the solar energy market.
