Live Oak Wind
Stepping in to Manage a $350 Million Wind Project
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Live Oak Wind Project, LLC is a 200 MW wind energy generation facility owned by Engie North America, consisting of 76 SiemensGamesa 2.625 MW wind turbine generators. Construction began in March 2018 but did not get off to a productive start. Engie looked to Ulteig to get this $350 million wind project back on track.
Ulteig assumed the role of Owner’s Engineer in May, stepping in quickly to develop a full, turnkey solution that included management of the Engineer, Procure Construct (EPC) balance of plant contractor and wind turbine supplier. Ulteig was also responsible for overseeing the procurement and commissioning of the turbine supplier agreement (TSA), main power transformer (MPT) procurement, independent engineer and owner’s engineer coordination, ERCOT grid interface and compliance, utility transmission interconnection coordination and COD, close-out and acceptance activities.
Engie has reacted positively to Ulteig’s quality of work and the level of dedication invested in making the Live Oak Wind project a resounding success. Engie and Ulteig remain committed to a long-lasting relationship and have collaborated on the Solomon Forks, East Fork, Seymour Hills and other wind projects.
