S&C Electric Co. says it will provide a complete procure-construct solution for the Coram Ridge Wind Farm in Mojave, Calif. The company will procure and construct the electrical equipment necessary to connect 34 Vestas 3.0-MW turbines to the grid.
The wind project is owned by Coram California Development LP and, at completion, will have a capacity of 102 MW. For this project, S&C will integrate a 69 kV underground transmission line and develop two 66 kV substations and overhead and underground collector systems.
‘We are drawing on our extensive renewable energy and electric utility experience to customize a solution to increase the wind farm's capacity,’ says Dan Girard, director of renewable energy at S&C. ‘This is just another example of how, working closely with our customers, we can develop effective approaches to meet even the most difficult renewable energy integration challenges.’
