Largest clean energy infrastructure project in the U.S. to start construction

Wind power and transmission line project SunZia is ready to kick off construction. Once completed, the project will generate and transmit a significant amount of wind energy from New Mexico to consumers in the western United States.

Quanta is an industry leader in providing specialized infrastructure solutions to the utility, renewable energy, communications, pipeline and energy industries. The company has been selected by Pattern Energy to provide infrastructure solutions for the SunZia Transmission and SunZia Wind projects.

"Quanta's selection for these projects builds on a long-standing customer relationship of our industry-leading renewable generation solutions company, Blattner Company, and we appreciate the confidence that Pattern Energy has placed in Quanta to execute on these critical and historic renewable energy projects. We believe these awards validate the power of our combined high-voltage transmission and renewable generation solutions and demonstrate the value of our collaborative approach to providing comprehensive energy transition infrastructure solutions," said Duke Austin, Quanta's President and Chief Executive Officer. "North America's energy transition to a reduced-carbon economy is accelerating but remains in the early stages of a multi-decade process that will require significant investment in power grid and renewable infrastructure. We believe our self-perform capabilities and vertically integrated solutions allow us to provide greater cost, schedule and quality certainty to our clients, which also benefits consumers, and that the comprehensive approach we are taking on the SunZia projects can serve as a model for the renewable and utility industries going forward."

"The SunZia project is changing the landscape for renewable energy, and we need to ensure that we have the best team in place to help bring it to life," said Hunter Armistead, Chief Executive Officer of Pattern Energy. "Along with enough clean power for 3 million American consumers, SunZia is designed to bring a far-reaching economic boost to the region, including the expected creation of over 2,000 new jobs and an expected $20.5 billion in economic impact."

The SunZia Transmission project is designed to transmit approximately 3,000 MW of electricity generated by the SunZia Wind project on an HVDC transmission line from central New Mexico to south-central Arizona, facilitating the transportation of renewable energy to the western United States. Preconstruction activities have begun, with construction expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2023 and project completion expected to occur by the end of 2025.

Located in Lincoln, Torrance and San Miguel Counties in New Mexico, the SunZia Wind project is a 3,500-MW wind generation facility designed to generate enough electricity to power the needs of more than 3 million consumers. The wind farms will consist of 900 turbines, ten substations, seven operations and maintenance facilities and a switchyard. Preconstruction activities have begun, with full construction expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2023 and project completion expected by the end of 2025.
