Wind Turbine Project - Lempster, NH

Lempster, NH

Project Details

  • Category: energy-generation
  • Job Type:Wind
  • Location: Lempster, NH
  • Schedule: On time

Scope of Work

Twelve 2 MW Wind Turbines in Western NH. Drilled and blasted rock through Winter and Spring to construct mountain access road for installation and maintenance of turbines. Installed 216 rock anchors for foundations.

Challenges

Drilling and blasting an access road through mountainous terrain in an unforgiving geology. Drilling and blasting and installing rock anchors in Winter and Spring conditions. Working through a snowfall that was nearly twice the average for that particular region to maintain an aggressive schedule.

Outcome

The team met the challenge by creating both the material needed and the grades required. The foundations were accomplished with the highest capacity solid rock anchors available.

Schedule

A late January start to accomplish access for tower erection in June. The roads and foundations had to be constructed and ready to receive tower pieces in June allowing the summer months for the heavy rigging involved with constructing the turbines.

Summary

We were participants in the construction of the first commercial wind power facility in New Hampshire. We accomplished a difficult project and strengthened our connections with our teammates/customers.
