Pioneer Wind Park I is an 80 megawatt wind turbine farm near Glenrock, WY. Here, 46 1.85 megawatt wind turbine generators from GE span from a canyon to a mountain range. Through a concentrated effort, a new level of thinking, and a focus on collaboration, the team completed this project creatively and efficiently. And it was needed. Record snow and rainfall early in the project required additional attention to ensure the county roads were upgraded while maintaining accessibility to local residences. The project’s single surface access point is through six miles of canyon road. Multiple sections of the road had a 14% grade; careful coordination was necessary to ensure all deliveries made it to the turbine pads safely. Our team safely coordinated road shutdowns to accommodate deliveries of turbine components, cranes, and rebar. But that’s not all. We also installed the first aircraft detection system approved by the Federal Aviation Authority. This radar-activated lighting technology mitigates the impact of flashing lights on the local community, with the lights only being activated when an aircraft is detected nearby.
