A construction company in Kentucky may have gotten a contract to build a large-scale wind turbine, but the company may not be getting paid for the work.
In fact, the company’s owner has been paying himself and other contractors for work done by other contractors, including one in Florida that he and another company contracted out.
The contract for the new turbine is with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Las Vegas, which was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to help with a massive wind farm project in Arizona.
But in February 2018, when the new wind farm was due to begin, the NREL awarded a separate contract to Adams Construction Companies, a Kentucky construction company, according to an internal company document obtained by the Associated Press.
Adams Construction is owned by businessman Richard Adams, who is also chairman of the company that made the award.
The NREL did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
Adams is the only company involved in the project to have a contract with the Army Corps for work that it completed before the Corps awarded the contract to the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center.
Adams, who owns a Kentucky-based construction company called Adams Construction, has had a dispute with the U,S.
Navy, over the use of a commercial boat, which he has been using for offshore drilling operations, according the documents obtained by AP.
The Navy has said it did not order Adams to use the boat for the drilling operation.
The Navy has also said that it has not sought to block the use or sale of the boat, and that it is looking into the issue.NREL has declined to say how many contractors were involved in a bid to build the large-wind turbine, which would be the first in a new national wind energy program in the United States.
The Army Corps did not provide any data about how many subcontractors were involved.
The National Renewables Laboratory, an independent federal agency, is a federal agency with a mandate to assess the viability of renewable energy sources and to support research into those technologies.
It does not have any oversight of commercial contractors.NRL spokesman Steve Kohn said the agency was “not aware” of any instances of subcontractors having conflicts with the agency.
The NREL does not track the number of contractors who have been awarded contracts under the National Wind Energy Program, he said.NREPL does not award contracts to contractors for wind projects that have not been completed.
However, the National Environmental Policy Act does require that all work performed by contractors in any federal, state or local government be disclosed to the public.
The act also requires that contractors disclose the nature of the work performed.
The contracts for the turbine in Kentucky have not yet been awarded.
