The 150 MW Burgos Wind Farm is the largest wind power project in Southeast Asia and is located within a 600-hectare site. The facility consists of 50 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3 MW, generating electricity to the Luzon Grid. The project also included a substation and a 43 kilometre long 115 kV transmission line.
The first phase of the project consisted of 29 wind turbines and additional infrastructure; the second phase included another 21 turbines. The project required exceptional coordination as the second phase was started before the end of the first phase, and they were commissioned at the same time.
WSP served as owner’s engineer providing project technical and monitoring support.
The project received winner of the 2015 Asia Power Engineering International Best Renewable Energy Project – Burgos Wind Farm, Philippines (Power Engineering International) Certificate of Recognition for achieving 5 million safe man-hours with no lost time incident.
