The Future of Energy in Rural Communities

600 MW Confidential Wind Energy Project | Colorado

Energy - Civil Engineering

Spanning three counties in eastern Colorado, this three-phased project includes wind turbines and almost 50 miles of transmission lines. Cumulatively, the three phases generate 600-megawatts, which is enough electricity to power 185,000 homes. The CORE team provided civil engineering services for the project.

Wind development projects are typically under a tight schedule, as permitting must be completed before mobilization of any onsite construction crews. Observance of deadlines is paramount to keeping the project on schedule, adhering to the project power purchase agreement. CORE was instrumental in obtaining all county and state permits and in managing multiple departments and contractors. CORE served as a clearinghouse for information, effectively disseminating information and directing workflow among all parties to maintain project momentum.

CORE’s successful management of multiple contractors and departments on this project identified new best practices in construction administration related to environmental compliance. The project remains one of the largest wind farms in Colorado.
