Wolverine Creek Wind Farm – Idaho Falls, ID

In 2007 TVIG made the first commercial installation of the Clipper Liberty 2.5MW turbine for BQ Energy and UPC (First Wind). The project is situated on slag deposits of a former steel mill in Idaho Falls. Classified as a Superfund site by the EPA, the site’s geotechnical report required deep dynamic compaction to overcome the unique challenges associated with the man-made fill. The project was made more challenging by being only a few yards from the shores of Lake Erie.

TVIG was responsible for all aspects of project design and construction, including upgrades to a 1960s era distribution substation to accommodate the wind energy generation. Steel Winds received the 2007 Renewable Project of the Year.
