Alstom Energy Manufacturing plant that assembles wind turbine nacelles for Alstom Wind, North America in Amarillo, Texas. The 115,000 sq. ft. building was constructed on a 19 acre site and serves as the company’s manufacturing, energy development and sales divisions. Alstom Wind is a subsidiary of ALSTOM Power, Inc., an international power and transportation company.

The Contractor, Ryan Companies, chose Helix Steel to provide structural reinforcement for the Industrial Slab on Grade and Foundation Applications. This increased the overall strength and durability of the concrete, while reducing both construction time and carbon footprint.
