Iowa wind turbine tower plant still a go

Posted on January 10, 2008. Filed under: Wind |

From an article by Cindy Iutzi in the Daily Gate City (Keokuk, Iowa):

Keokuk Mayor David Gudgel believes the city is poised at the beginning of a year that will be busy and fruitful, but it is a different year than he believed it would be.

On Dec. 21, 2007, Ken Hendricks, a billionaire who had invested heavily in the Keokuk business community, died suddenly in an accident at his home in Wisconsin.

Projects he had started working on in Keokuk, such as the 350- to 400-employee wind turbine tower manufacturing plant scheduled to begin construction this year, halted with his death.
