Mars Hill, ME

Project Details

  • Category: energy-generation
  • Job Type:Wind
  • Location: Mars Hill, ME
  • Schedule: On time
 

Scope of Work

Twenty-eight wind towers at an elevation of 1,800 feet required road construction for the crane to move from tower to tower.

Challenges

To design a road that worked with contours and allowed the crane the appropriate grades and radii. The foundations have huge wind loads and had marginal geotechnical conditions.

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

With the final permits in place in Spring, the work had to be completed before severe winter conditions. An 18-month schedule was compressed to 9 months.

Summary

The project's success gave Maine people more jobs on future projects, as well as more green power.
