Engineering firm Tetra Tech Inc. has been awarded three wind energy projects totaling approximately $150 million by PacifiCorp, a utility that serves the western U.S. Work on the three projects will begin immediately and is expected to be completed in December. Tetra Tech will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the Seven Mile Hill, Glenrock and Rolling Hills wind farm projects in Wyoming.

Each of the three wind projects will include 66 GE wind turbines and will be capable of generating 99 MW of power.

"Many clients are seeking full-service solutions for their wind power development projects," says Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech's CEO. "Tetra Tech has been involved in 70 wind projects in 35 states and is continuing to expand its capability and experience in this growing market."

The Seven Mile Hill wind project is in Carbon County and the Glenrock and Rolling Hills projects are located in Converse County.
