Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK is currently finalising a contract to supply balance of plant services, including cabling and electrical work, for the Lochluichart Wind Farm, for developer Eneco.
Eneco is committed to providing opportunities for local contractors and suppliers and is targeting that the majority of the balance of plant contract is spent on local suppliers.
This represents an investment of approximately £3.5m in the local area. Eneco and its partners, including Jones Bros, will be conducting a Meet the Buyer event prior to main site works commencement to provide the opportunity for local businesses to register their interest and understand how they can participate in this scheme.
Further details about this event will be available at www.lochluichart-windfarm.com shortly.
The 51MW wind farm will be developed on the Lochluichart Estate, located on the higher land between Loch Glascarnoch and Loch Luichart.
It is due to enter construction at the end of this year, with full operation expected in 2013. It will be capable of generating electricity to meet the needs of 28,500 homes.
