Herrera was part of a consortium of firms selected by the Redwood Coast Energy Authority (RCEA) to enter into a public-private partnership to pursue the development of an offshore wind energy project off the coast of Humboldt County in California.
The consortium — which consists of Principle Power Inc., EDPR Offshore North America LLC, Aker Solutions Inc., H.T. Harvey & Associates and Herrera Environmental Consultants Inc. — is a highly-capable team with the needed capacity to permit, develop, finance, operate and build a supply chain to support this and future projects.
The proposed project is a 100-150 MW floating offshore wind farm planned to be located more than 20 miles off the coast of Eureka. The project could potentially pave the way for offshore wind energy off the West Coast.
