The developer released a time-lapse video of the whole construction process, from preparation of foundations, cable laying and turbine installation. 

The process shows, from rare perspectives, the complicated logistics that go in to installing a wind project.

Xcel Energy's 200MW Courtenay project, acquired in April 2015, comprises 100 Vestas V100-2MW turbines across the 101 square kilometre site. It took 15 months to construct, Xcel said.
