Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES Americas) has been selected as the balance-of-plant (BOP) constructor for Phase II of the Lower Snake River wind farm.

Portland General Electric (PGE) recently announced it had entered into an asset purchase agreement to acquire the development rights to the wind project from Puget Sound Energy Inc. (PSE) and that RES America Construction Inc. will serve as general contractor.

The Lower Snake River - Phase II wind farm, which is located near Dayton, Wash., will be 267 MW and utilize116 wind turbines manufactured by Siemens Energy Inc., each with a nameplate generating capacity of 2.3 MW. The project is expected to be complete by 2015.

RES Americas was the original developer of the Lower Snake River wind farm and in 2009 sold the development assets to PSE, at which time PSE assumed the role of owner and developer of the project. RES Americas also performed the BOP construction on the 343 MW Lower Snake River Wind Project - Phase I, which was completed in 2012. PSE owns and operates that project.
