BayWa Taps Signal Energy to Build New Mexico Wind Farm Before Year End

BayWa Taps Signal Energy to Build New Mexico Wind Farm Before Year End 
CHATTANOOGA, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 10/31/13 --  Signal Energy
Constructors, a major design/build general contractor providing
engineering, procurement and construction services to the North
American renewable energy industry, was recently awarded a full
design/build contract from BayWa r.e. Wind LLC for the Brahms 20
megawatt wind farm. The project is currently under construction and
is scheduled for completion before the end of the year. Brahms is
located in Grady, New Mexico, 25 miles outside of Clovis.  
"Signal Energy's commitment to building in-house expertise in the
most critical areas of utility scale wind construction enables us to
take projects, like Brahms, from design to completion with great
efficiency and superior quality," said Ben Fischer, CEO of Signal
A critical area of utility scale wind construction in which Signal
Energy provides in-house expertise is preconstruction value
engineering. Early stage performance of this value engineering
analysis insures projects are designed in a way that maximizes
long-term energy production and short-term capital costs for
construction without compromising quality. Signal Energy's ability to
optimize Brahms' wind project components cut several months off the
design/build timeline. 
"We have reached agreement with Signal Energy in two and half weeks
with construction already underway and the goal is set to deliver
energy before year-end. Signal built a number of our projects
including last year's Mozart project in Texas. We value the quality
of their work and engineering expertise," commented Florian Zerhusen,
CEO, BayWa r.e. Wind, LLC adding that BayWa continuously is looking
for projects. 
Signal Energy's scope of work includes full design and engineering of
all project civil infrastructure, underground and overhead collection
systems, wind turbine foundations, project substations and the
project interconnection facilities. In addition, Signal Energy will
self-perform the wind turbine erection.  
Signal Energy was awarded the design/build contract from BayWa in
September and construction began in October. 
Signal Energy has more than 7,500 megawatts of renewable energy,
utility scale project experience.
