Cooper and Turner are supplying foundation studs to the Las Lomas wind project. The site is currently under construction and covers over 36,000 acres.
The Las Lomas wind project is situated in a rural area of south Texas, adjacent to the border between Texas and Mexico. The project site is surrounded by large ranch holdings and active oil and gas drilling operations.
The wind farm will consist of 48 4.2MW wind turbines and associated access roads, an underground electrical collection system and a 5 mile overhead 138kV transmission line.
