The Harbor Wind Project consisted of six United Power 1.5MW wind turbines with a hub height of 80m located on the shores of Nueces Bay in Corpus Christi, Texas. The turbines were supported by 8 - 48” drilled shafts that were 95 ft., with the exception of the Turbine No. 5. During the drilled shaft construction the foundations for Turbine No. 5 were redesigned to 8 – 48” shafts with an overall length of 115 feet. The unstable subsurface conditions, extremely high water table and close proximity provided a challenging project. A.H. Beck installed the foundations using the slurry displaced method in conjunction with temporary casing.
