Na Pua Makani Power Partners (NPMPP), a subsidiary of Champlin/GEI Wind Holdings, LLC (CGEI), is planning to undertake the Na Pua Makani wind farm project in Hawaii, the US.
The project involves the construction of a 25MW wind farm with eight wind turbines (revised from earlier ten turbines) of 200m height.
The project includes the construction of a substation, a powerhouse and other related infrastructure, and the laying of transmission lines.
The project site includes 93.8ha owned by the Department of Land and Natural Resources and 139.6ha owned by Maleakahana Hui West.
In January 2015, Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (HPUC) has approved a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) between Hawaiian Electric Co and CGEI.
In March 2015, the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) started the process of evaluating the environmental impact of the project.
In June 2015, the local residents started opposing the project development. Following the opposition, in May 2016 the project proponents have downsized the number of wind turbines from ten to eight; however, to accommodate reduced number, the turbine height is planned to increase from 155m to 200m.
On May 25, 2016, a public meeting on the second draft was held; whereas the comments on the second draft were accepted until June 7, 2016.
In October 2016, Board of Land and Natural Resources (BLNR) approved a 40-year lease for up to nine wind turbines for the project.
In November 2016, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) re-opened a 30-day public comment period on the Supplemental Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) with a submission deadline of December 17, 2016.
Site Constructors Inc. has been appointed as general contractor.
In November 2016, NPMPP secured approvals from the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Planning and Permitting for the project site.
Construction works are expected to commence in 2017.
The project involves the construction of a 25MW wind farm with eight wind turbines of 200m height in Oahu, Hawaii, the US.
