GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — Construction crews working on the 10 megawatt Fairfield Wind Generation Project have braved cold and snow to prepare the site north of Fairfield for the installation of six wind turbines to harness the steady winds that blow out of the southwest.

Now, if the wind would just give them enough of a break to start raising the towers, turbines and rotor blades. Project manager Dave Rogers tells the Great Falls Tribune (http://gftrib.com/1dHaiJS ) the rest of the work on the project will be scheduled around the weather, and some work may be done at night when the wind doesn’t blow so hard.

The $19 million project is co-owned by San Francisco-based Foundation Windpower and WINData, a wind energy consulting and project management firm in Great Falls.

All six turbines are scheduled to be complete by mid-June.
