Shortly after receiving the contract for the 104 MW Sunflower Wind Project, Solas Energy Consulting US Inc. and its Canadian partner company, Solas Energy Consulting Inc., have announced two additional significant project awards.
According to the company, Solas will provide comprehensive construction management services for the 51 MW Hancock Wind Project, under construction near Ellsworth, Maine, and the 185 MW Bingham Wind Project, under construction near Bingham, Maine. Solas Energy will oversee the turbine supplier and balance-of-plant contractor’s site work on behalf of the project owners, Hancock Wind LLC and Blue Sky West LLC.
Construction was started on both projects in 2015. Solas Energy was brought in midway through project construction to replace the existing construction management contractor.
“The real challenge with these projects was the seamless transition of responsibility over a short time frame. Solas was able to retain the current construction and project management team through the transition, which went a long way toward keeping the projects on schedule and within budget,” said Solas Energy Consulting’s co-founder and president, Evelyn Carpenter.
Solas Energy Consulting is focused on providing consulting services for renewable energy and climate change solutions throughout the U.S. and Canada. The company’s expertise spans the full range of project development and management, construction services, business development, and climate change policy analysis.
