Renewable Energy Division
Atlantic's Renewable Energy Division provides wind power consulting, permitting services and engineering services. Use of our in-house proprietary wind mapping software, GIS capabilities, CADD systems, and WindPro energy, noise, shadow flicker and photosimulation software allow us to complete comprehensive engineering assessments and technical drawings in accordance with the accelerated program schedules of the solar and wind generation industries
Our staff of professionals and support personnel, including civil and environmental engineers, environmental scientists, wind energy scientists and land surveyors, creates a stable foundation for the specialization necessary for a successful renewable project.
To date we have been involved in the siting analysis, permitting and design of over 50 wind turbine project sites throughout New England. Atlantic has the unique skills for effective wind turbine project assessment, permitting and construction. Check out select projects and services through the links on the right!
Utilizing GIS mapping technology Atlantic performs initial site analyses and conceptual site plans for both commercial and privately owned renewable projects. Early conceptual planning is an imperative stage in the process of completing a successful project.
Permitting challenges include in depth environmental reviews by the State of Massachusetts under the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA), and the Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program as well and obtaining approval as a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) from the Cape Cod Commission, a county wide regional permitting authority.
Atlantic's involvement in these permitting processes and the local Planning Board Special Permit process, consist of preparation of site plans, stormwater and erosion control design, site grading and balance of earthwork activities and delivery/maintenance access road design.
Power Production and Feasibility
With over 15 year of experience in the renewable field, Atlantic has specialized in assessing the feasibility and energy production of wind and solar projects. Once it has been determined that a large or small project is feasible for the Client's needs, energy estimates help determine the scale of a project. Moving forward Atlantic provides project management and engineering services through completion of any project.
