RES (Renewable Energy Systems), a leader in the development, engineering, and construction of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects in the Americas is pleased to announce the company has been selected by Avangrid Renewables to construct a 200.85 MW wind farm in Gilliam County, Oregon. RES’ construction role will begin in November 2018 with commercial operation expected in September 2019.

The construction contract represents Phase I of the overall 404 MW Montague Wind Farm and is expected to consist of 56 Vestas wind turbines. The construction, which began in September 2017, will employ approximately 250 workers at its peak and will have up to 14 full-time jobs once it reaches commercial operation. Once complete, the wind farm would provide approximately 560 million kWh of renewable energy per year, equal to the electricity usage of about 52,000 Oregon households.

“RES is delighted to be working with Avangrid Renewables to deliver Phase 1 of the Montague wind project,” says Rick Ortiz, RES Senior Vice President of Wind Construction. “We are committed to creating and maintaining lasting relationships with the communities in which we work and will use local resources wherever possible as well as hiring qualified local workers.”

“Working with an accomplished construction partner like RES who understands our commitments to safety and the local community is important as we continue work on our tenth Oregon wind farm,” said David Carroll, Avangrid Renewables’ Vice President of Projects. “We’ll be able to deliver another competitive product to our customers while supporting farmers and the surrounding area with substantial economic benefits.”
