In the Kuskokwim village of Kasigluk, STG executed complex, multi-faceted projects to complete an energy system overhaul for the Alaska Village Electric Cooperative (AVEC). This project was valued at $14.6 million and completed in 2006. The complete scope of work involved the consolidation and renovation of three unique and isolated energy systems in the villages of Kasigluk, Akula Heights, and Nunapitchuk. It involved the transfer of primary power generation from Nunapitchuk to Akula Heights and required STG to maintain power supplies to all three villages throughout construction. In addition to constructing foundations, STG installed new power generation modules in Akula Heights to provide a new, more efficient heat recovery system. An expanded village distribution system was also completed, including the installation of a new five-mile intertie between Kasigluk and Nunapitchuk across various waterways between the communities supported by pile foundations. STG also installed three 100 kW wind generators supported by large diameter helical piles.
