Wind Turbine Park - Logistics and Erection

80 Wind Turbines in 80 days

BC&R completed all logistics and erection aspects of an extremely aggressive project to meet the needs of the largest wind energy producer in the US. The 80-wind turbine farm northeast of Evanston is Wyoming's largest and can generate up to 144 megawatts. BC&R efficiently and safely transported and erected the 1.8 MW machines on 65m towers in less than three months overcoming the obstacles of inclement weather and the tight erection schedule. BC&R provided seamless execution of the complicated shipments from multiple US ports to mechanical completion on the jobsite.
