The 140MW windfarm project involved the design and construction of the civil and electrical infrastructure to allow the installation and commissioning of 60 Siemens 2.3MW wind turbine generator systems (WTGs).
A control building was also designed and constructed at Friardykes (see separate case study).
The £20m scheme required intensive preparation and consultation with planners, landowners and stakeholders in order to discharge the scheme’s planning conditions. This was successfully achieved on time, through pro-active management.
In addition to the turbine foundations, the scheme involved the construction of 28km of access track.
The majority of the balance-of-plant infrastructure was completed prior to the delivery of the turbines in August 2009. Construction and commissioning was completed in July 2010.
