Muskogee Wind Tower Facility Plans Delayed (Jul 25, 2011)

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) — Plans to develop a 150,000-square-foot wind turbine manufacturing facility at the Port of Muskogee have been delayed.

Scott Robinson, the director of the Muskogee City-County Port Authority, tells the Muskogee Phoenix that the best-case scenario for construction to begin on the Eagle Claw Fabrication LLC plant to be operational would be sometime during the first quarter of 2012.

Construction was expected to start during the fourth quarter of this year. Robinson says development renewable energy projects have slowed down in recent months.

Tulsa-based Eagle Claw Fabrication has said about 175 jobs would be created during the first phase of the project. The company's founder, Tom Word, has been involved in the steel fabrication industry for more than 35 years.
