In October, the Geotechnical Division completed a subsurface investigation and geotechnical evaluation to support the construction of a wind turbine in Westport, Massachusetts. The evaluation was completed as part of site specific conditions assessment to verify design requirements for a prefabricated/predesigned foundation system for the cast-in-place concrete turbine foundation. PARE’s scope of work included the completion of subsurface explorations and evaluation of the encountered stratum and confirmation of the capacity of the subsurface profile to provide the minimum foundation requirements in the wind turbine design package. The proposed foundation and tower support a turbine from XZERES Wind.
