  • Erected three, GE 1.5 MW wind turbines, including tower sections, nacelle, hub, and blades

Unique Challenge

Cianbro constructed the wind turbines on Vinalhaven Island approximately 12 miles off the coast of Maine. The location of the project required all construction materials and equipment to be barged to the island. In order to transport the 18 erection crane loads, 27 turbine loads, 30 concrete loads, and all the construction material and equipment to the project site requires precise logistics, including; scheduling and coordination with the owner, vendors, and transportation companies to ensure all material is transported in the most cost effective and safest way possible. Due to the size of Vinalhaven Island and how its economy depends on fishing and summer tourism, Cianbro worked closely with the community to mitigate any impacts that arose as it related to the project.
