Arctic Directory: ENSR to prepare EIS on Wyoming wind project

ENSR has been selected by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to prepare the environmental impact statement for a major new wind energy project proposed by the Power Company of Wyoming. ENSR, a leading environmental services firm, is part of AECOM, a global provider of professional technical and management support services.

The Power Company of Wyoming filed right-of-way applications with the BLM Rawlins Field Office to develop two wind farms on 98,000 acres in the Rawlins and Carbon County.

The proposed 1,000 turbine wind energy project on the two sites would provide 2,000 megawatts of power to the national electric power grid, establishing Wyoming as the third-largest wind energy generation state, behind Texas and California.

ENSR was selected to assist the BLM with preparing the EIS because of its environmental permitting and management experience with large, complex energy projects. Over the past 10 years they have completed over 30 environmental impact statements for industrial development projects under the direction of the BLM and other federal agencies.  These projects have included oil and gas field developments, natural gas and natural gas liquids pipelines, electrical transmission lines, power plants and precious metal mines.

“We are looking forward to analyzing a wind energy project at such a large geographic scale,” said Scott Ellis, ENSR’s director of capital permitting. “Wind power will have a prominent role in the expansion of America’s use of renewable energy resources.

ENSR, a worldwide environmental management firm, staffs 2,600 employees from 90 global offices. They provide comprehensive consulting, engineering, remediation, and environmental health and safety management solutions. For more about ENSR visit www.ensr.aecom.com.
