Bull Hill Wind Farm, Hancock Wind Power, Weaver Wind Power
As part of an EPC contract between Reed & Reed and First Wind, CHA was responsible for the electrical collector system and substation design for the Bull Hill Wind Farm project, a 34.2 MW wind farm with provisions to increase total generation to 77.4 MW. The design included an underground 34.5kV collector system, 115kV Bangor Hydro Electric Company (BHECo) switchyard, and 115kV-34.5kV collector substation.
Near completion of the Bull Hill Wind Power Project EPC contract, Reed & Reed was asked by First Wind to provide initial services related to the second phase of the project, the Hancock Wind Power project, which included another 17 wind turbines, 3 MW units, for a total additional nameplate capacity of 54 MW. The Hancock project included an underground collector system and interconnect at the Bull Hill substation and switchyard. CHA provided preliminary electrical engineering services related to the permitting phase. Our scope included preparing the collector system layouts for all areas with road improvements, including all four wind turbine groupings, and base mapping for areas that will consist of collector line routing only. Following the permit level design, CHA provided electrical engineering services for the design and construction phases of the Hancock Wind Power project.
The Weaver Wind Power Project expansion was close to the Bull Hill and Hancock projects. The Weaver project included 22 wind turbines, 3.3 MW units, for a total additional nameplate capacity of 72.6 MW. The Weaver project included underground and overhead collector systems and interconnects at the existing Bull Hill switchyard. CHA provided electrical engineering services related to the permitting, design, and construction phases, which included preparing the collector system layouts for all areas that included road improvements and base mapping for collector line routing areas.
