Signal Energy Constructors, an engineering, procurement and construction services firm won a design/build contract from BayWa r.e. Wind for the Brahms 20 MW wind farm.
The wind energy project is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion before the end of the year. Brahms is located in Grady, New Mexico, 25 miles outside of Clovis.
A critical area of utility scale wind construction in which Signal Energy provides in-house expertise is preconstruction value engineering. Early stage performance of this value engineering analysis insures projects are designed in a way that maximizes long-term energy production and short-term capital costs for construction without compromising quality. Signal Energy's ability to optimize Brahms' wind project components cut several months off the design/build timeline.
Signal Energy's scope of work includes full design and engineering of all project civil infrastructure, underground and overhead collection systems, wind turbine foundations, project substations and the project interconnection facilities. In addition, Signal Energy will self-perform the wind turbine erection.
Signal Energy was awarded the design/build contract from BayWa in September and construction began in October.
