North to Wichita or south to Oklahoma City, this new wind farm is delivering clean power from one of the most energetic wind development sites in Oklahoma. Enjoying strong community support, the development – which uses less than 2 percent of its site – brings $5 million every year to the farming communities of Northern Oklahoma.
We provided interconnect engineering services for the developer and supported negotiations for the 138 kilovolt interconnect with Oklahoma Gas & Electric. Stantec also designed the 345 to 34.5 kilovolt collector substation including site work, physical geographic information system switchgear and electrical design, procurement and construction specifications, testing procedures, and operations and maintenance manuals. Design of the collector system included system studies, 34.5 kilovolt feeder design, equipment and construction specifications and testing procedures, control system including communication, Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA), protective relay setting, and testing.
