Construction of a control facility for a collector substation to facilitate a new wind farm development. The collector substation provides metering and control of the wind farm as the power is transmitted into the grid.
Ausland, selected by Bonneville through a best-value selection process, designed and constructed the facility in just 12 weeks. It allows integration of new private wind farms into the power grid. The project is part of Bonneville’s plan to have up to 6,000-megawatts of power from wind by 2013.
Ausland designed/built the wind farm that tied into the grid by the control house. It has an installed capacity of 100.8-megawatts – enough to power approximately 28,000 homes with clean energy each year.
