Tetra Tech showed other valuable qualities in its work as the prime contractor for the Fire Island Wind Project near Anchorage, Alaska. The 17.6 megawatt project eliminates the need for burning about 500 million cubic feet of natural gas. The location is an uninhabited island where the turbines are the least disruptive. However, the location also posed significant logistical and safety challenges during the construction phase. The company completed construction of the eleven 1.6 megawatt wind towers, turbines and connecting facilities ahead of schedule and with no incidents or injuries.
