Pantex Wind Farm– Panhandle, TX

Project Owner - National Nuclear Security Agency (NNSA), Pantex Facility

WTG Model - Siemens 2.3 MW, 101 meter Rotor

Total MW - 11.5 MW

Interconnect Utility / Voltage - Pantex’s south (distribution) substation, 12.47 kV

Challenges / Unique aspects - The project is a federal Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC). TVIG was the EPC teaming partner and key subcontractor to the prime contractor, Siemens Government Technologies. The team developed a winning solution and was selected based, in part, on its innovative plan/proposal to save Pantex $2.8 MM in energy costs per year. TVIG was also able to help the team achieve the 25% small business participation requirement through its significant scope of work and its Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOSB) status.

Due to the nuclear aspects of the facility, security requirements were very high and often armed Pantex security escorts were required to observe during certain construction evolutions. Security clearance requirements and the communication and coordination requirements for this project were significantly higher and more critical than typical wind farm projects.

TVIG's scope included the design and construction of the entire project including: installation of five Siemens 2.3 MW turbines with 101 meter rotors, civil and foundation construction, and the design and installation of the underground and overhead 34.5 kV energy collection and distribution system to connect the turbines to the Pantex distribution substation.

Pantex is now the largest federally owned wind farm in the USA.
