Fire Island Wind Energy

Powering 7,500 Alaskan homes with wind energy.

Electricity for Alaska’s 500-mile Railbelt region has historically relied almost exclusively on natural gas. Driven by demand for an alternative power source to add reliability and cost savings, Fire Island Wind LLC turned to our team to help develop an 11-turbine wind farm capable of generating 18 megawatts of electricity – enough to power 7,500 homes.

We worked closely with Fire Island Wind to provide owner’s engineer services including project planning, geotechnical data review, design-build RFP preparation, solicitation for Transportation Indicative Pricing, and preliminary design to procure an EPCM contractor to design and construct the project. We also provided quality assurance reviews during construction. 

Today, the Fire Island Wind project provides electricity to Chugach Electric Association, which then feeds it into the Railbelt power grid, eliminating up to 500 million cubic feet of natural gas consumption annually.
