Client: Terna Energy
Terna Energy needed environmental and engineering expertise to develop and construct a 138 MW wind farm on the Snake River Plateau in Idaho. As owner’s engineer, POWER successfully led the client from planning stages to full operation.
- Guided an international client through strict U.S. regulatory processes to obtain funding and permits within tight timeframes.
- Environmental monitoring helped Terna to reduce risks and impacts on sensitive environmental sites and species such as spring-fed wetlands and federally threatened plants.
- Unique SCADA system design provides visibility of the electrical system locally at the project operations and maintenance building and remotely to the owner in Europe.
- Sixty 2.3 MW wind turbines
- Underground and overhead collection system
- Collection substation
- 230 kV interconnect
- Owner’s engineering
- Geotechnical engineering program evaluation
- Geotechnical subcontractor oversight
- Environmental monitoring and compliance including Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans, botanical surveys, and GIS-based wetland delineation desktop studies and 404 Permitting
- Review/approval of all specification and design drawings (civil, structural and electrical)
- SCADA system design, programming and configuration
