Champlin/ GEI Wind Holdings LLC (Champlin), through its subsidiary Na Pua Makani Power Partners, LLC, is planning to undertake the construction of a wind farm on Oahu’s North Shore in Hawaii, the US.
The project involves the construction of a 45MW wind farm. The project will be implemented in two phases.
The first phase involves the construction of a 25MW wind farm. It includes the installation of wind turbines, the construction of a power house, substations, and the laying of transmission lines.
The second phase involves the construction of a 20MW wind farm. It includes the installation of turbines, the construction of a power house, substations, and the laying of transmission lines.
West Wind Works has built a meteorological tower to test wind patterns in the area. The proposed turbines would be 199m at their highest point.
On December 17, 2013, Hawaiian Electric Co. signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Champlin.
In January 2015, Champlin secured approvals for the first phase of the project from Hawaii Public Utilities Commission for 20-year power purchase agreement.
As of May 2016, proposals to reduce the number of turbines are being considered.
Site Constructors Inc. was appointed as general contractor for the first phase and General Electric, Siemens and Vestas were appointed as turbine suppliers for the project.
On October 14, 2016, Hawaii State approved a 40-year lease for up to nine wind turbines near Kahuku and the Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR) approved Na Pua Makani Power Partners LLC’s lease to build the first phase of the project.
In November 2016, the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Planning and Permitting approved the project. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) invited public comments on the supplemental environmental-impact statement and habitat-conservation plan until December 19, 2016.
Champlin is seeking for incidental-take permits from USFWS. Planning activities on the second phase of the project are underway. Subject to approvals, construction is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2020 with completion scheduled by the fourth quarter of 2020.
