Unalakleet Wind Turbines

Unalakleet, Alaska

PROJECT SUMMARY

Name of Project
Unalakleet Wind Turbines

Location of Project
Unalakleet, Alaska

Client
Unalakleet Valley Electric Cooperative

Situation
Unalakleet is a remote village with one of the highest energy costs in the country and needed a renewable energy source for sustainable, lower cost energy.

Unique Challenges
The remote location is a barge and air access only, requiring thorough logistics and construction management to ensure success.

Solution
In 2009, STG completed the installation of one of the largest wind systems operating on Alaska’s west coast for Unalakleet Valley Electric Cooperative. Serving as project manager and general contractor, STG managed all project activities from conception to completion of the six-turbine installation and three-mile distribution line installation/upgrade. The project now exists as the largest single installation of Northwind 100 turbines and one of the first projects completed through the State of Alaska’s Renewable Energy Fund.

STG completed all elements of the project, on an accelerated schedule over a six-month period. Real-time energy production information for the project can be access online at northernpower.kiosk-view.com/unalakleet.
