Wind Energy

Wind Energy (wind power) refers to the process of creating electricity using the wind or air flows that occur naturally in the earth’s atmosphere. Modern wind turbines are used to capture kinetic energy from the wind and generate electricity.

The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters and MIllwrights have a long history of involvement within the Wind Energy industry. The installation teams combine agility and responsiveness to meet any aggressive project deadlines. Providing an efficient skilled workforce from the start of the project. Our Carpenters are trained and skilled for forming the foundation pedestals and setting the cages; then our skilled Millwrights install the precision torqued sequence bolting patterns securing the tower stems. Our Millwrights are the craft of choice for installing the engineered wind turbine blades to the generator and completing all the final assemblies of the power generation tower system.

As all of this demonstrates, with their unique skill set and precision training the Carpenters and Millwrights will be central to the application of current and future power generation developments. These projects will be needed to meet growing renewable energy demands to make Illinois 100% renewable by 2050.
