Everywhere the Wind Blows

250 MW Confidential Wind Energy Project | Colorado

Energy - Civil Engineering, Land Surveying

This wind energy project in Colorado is a 250-MW wind farm with a 30-mile transmission line. The project consists of wind turbines capable of generating electricity to approximately 74,700 homes. As the first wind farm permitted and constructed in the county, challenges with the terrain necessitated the design of turbine access roads accommodating grades, slope, and turning radiuses to accommodate turbine deliveries weighing more than 150 tons.

CORE worked closely with the client to permit and construct the project within an aggressive construction schedule. CORE established regular design update calls and assigned an internal team to prepare each construction plan set. By forging strong relationships with the county permitting staff in the Public Works and Planning and Zoning Departments, the firm gained a collaborative understanding of review criteria enabling a limited number of reviewer comments.

This environmentally-friendly project generates many additional economic benefits to the local community. CORE provided permitting, civil engineering, and land surveying services for the project.
