Wind Project

1,547-MW Wind Farm

Alta Wind Energy Center

With the completion of Phase 9 in 2012, this wind energy center eclipsed the 1-GW mark to become the largest wind farm in the United States. Blattner Energy built Phases 2-9 and most recently built Phases 10 and 11, which brought the total capacity of the farm to 1,547-MW in 2013.

As the EPC contractor for the project, Blattner has constructed more than 130 miles of access roads, installed more than 480 turbines and foundations, installed more than 200 miles of underground collection, installed more than 30 miles of 230-kV transmission line, and built six substations and a switchyard to support the project.
