Western Wind Energy Corp. (OP: WNDEF) has selected RMT, Inc. (RMT) a leading renewable energy engineering and construction company, to construct two wind energy facilities. RMT has commenced construction on the 120-MW Windstar project in Tehachapi, California, and the 10-MW Kingman project in Mohave County, Arizona. 

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Western Wind Energy on these clean energy projects." said David Kutcher, RMT Chief Commercial Officer. "Once completed, these two facilities will have the capacity to power approximately 35,000 homes annually." 

RMT is responsible for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the civil and electrical Balance of Plant (BOP) for the Windstar and Kingman projects, including the erection of Gamesa 2.0-MW wind turbines at both sites. 

"RMT has designed and constructed dozens of utility-scale wind farms across the U.S.," explains Alana Steele, General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer for Western Wind Energy. "We chose them to construct our Windstar and Kingman facilities because they know how to build reliable renewable energy facilities, while maintaining industry-leading health and safety performance." 

The Kingman facility is expected to commence commercial operation in the second quarter of 2011, while the Windstar facility is scheduled to come online in the fourth quarter of this year.
