Sargent & Lundy to Share Wind Power Project Insight at AWEA WINDPOWER 2019

The firm is presenting and exhibiting at the largest wind energy conference in the Western Hemisphere

May 14, 2019 – Sargent & Lundy is hosting a booth and presenting at AWEA WINDPOWER 2019, taking place May 20-23 in Houston.

Attendees are invited to visit Booth 3637 to meet our experienced team of wind power specialists and learn more about engineering and technical issues central to the completion of successful wind power projects.

Participants will have direct access to our experts with experience in all phases of wind power projects, from project inception through commercial operation. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about our proven solutions for technical issues that may occur following commercial operation. Additionally, we’ll have specialists available to discuss financial, regulatory, and environmental considerations for wind projects, including various contracting options for moving forward with wind power projects.

In addition to exhibiting at the event, Sargent & Lundy’s David Jolivet will present his poster, “Maximize Design Life: Benefits and Drawbacks of Today’s Wind Turbine Foundation Designs” on May 22 from 2-2:35 p.m. at station three.

Wind turbine foundations constitute the single most critical structural element in a wind farm’s design. A properly designed foundation provides the appropriate stability and stiffness that ensures the aboveground components achieve maximum intended design life, which is typically expected to be at least 20 years but can exceed 30 years. Jolivet explores several factors both technical and economical that impact particular foundation types.

We provide a wide range of services for wind project developers, contractors, owners, lenders, and investors, including:

  • Full plant design.
  • Site screenings.
  • Project feasibility studies.
  • Wind resource assessment.
  • Independent engineering.
  • Interconnection planning.
  • Conceptual engineering.
  • Contract development.
  • Detailed engineering.
  • Design reviews.
  • Construction monitoring.
  • Commissioning.
