Eagle Claw Fabrication to Invest $28M in Port of Muskogee, Oklahoma Wind Turbine Facility

06/30/2010
Eagle Claw Fabrication, a manufacturer of wind turbines, will build a 150,000-square-foot facility at the Port of Muskogee in Oklahoma. The first phase of the project will create approximately 175 jobs. The cost of the facility is estimated at $28 million, and it is scheduled to begin operations as early as spring 2011.

"Access to the McClellan-Kerr Waterway via the Port of Muskogee provides Eagle Claw with unique and substantive competitive advantages over other turbine tower manufacturers, including substantial transportation cost savings that can be passed along to its clients," said Eagle Claw Founder Tom Word.

The facility's site is adjacent to the Port's railcar marshaling yard, which connects to the Union Pacific Railroad in Muskogee.

Eagle Claw will also be able to fabricate offshore wind towers and heavy tubular structures for the geothermal, tidal, solar, hydrokinetic, biomass, and carbon capture industries.
