The Pilot Hill Wind Project, located in Kankakee and Iroquois counties, 60 miles southwest of Chicago, was part of a 20-year power purchase agreement with the goal of providing jobs and energy to the surrounding communities for years to come. WSB was hired to provide ALTA Survey, Micro Siting and As-Built ALTA services for the 175 MC project.
The survey team provided preliminary turbine and access-road staking to help the developer identify and understand any challenges that might arise during construction. They also provided 3rd party verification, confirming all proposed facilities were placed per plan. The team also completed As-Built ALTA surveys during and after construction, ensuring all proposed infrastructure stayed within project constraints.
The survey results and an overall site plan were delivered to the client electronically to guide real-time decision-making and keep the Pilot Hill Wind Project on track. The energy generation project provided over 150 jobs to residents, reduced the carbon footprint, and assisted in the counties’ cost-control of energy for years to come.
