Hallam Wind LLC (HWL) and Hallam Wind Two LLC (HWTL), subsidiaries of Volkswind USA Inc (Volkswind) are planning to construct a wind farm across Lancaster County and Gage County, the US.
The project involves the construction of a 124MW wind farm on 2,833ha of land in Lancaster County and 1,619ha of land in Gage County.
It includes the construction of a substation, a switchgear building, a control room, access roads and related infrastructure, the installation of 54 turbines and 80m wind towers, and the laying of transmission lines.
On September 29, 2014, Volkswind on behalf of HWL and HWTL submitted plans for the development.
In February 2015, Volkswind withdrew its application at the request of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department after it drew criticism from a host of county landowners.
On November 10, 2015, Lancaster County Board (LCB) approved regulations that establish noise limits of 40 decibels in the day and 37 decibels at night for wind turbines.
On February 26, 2016, a coalition of business and civic leaders requested the county planning department to approve policies that will allow wind energy development.
In March 2016, LCB held a special public hearing to review to gather input on proposed wind energy regulations.
The project is facing delays due to the existing noise limits established in the region.
The project involves the construction of a 124MW wind power plant on 2,833ha of land in Lancaster County and 1,619ha of land in Gage County in the US.
