Construction

There are a few key factors to consider during the construction process:

Site Preparation

Prior to the commencement of construction, a number of activities occur, including excavation of trial pits for geotechnical investigations, construction of site access tracks, and the careful stripping and storage of top soil for re-use. Following perparation of the site and foundations, erection of each wind turbine usually only takes one day. Depending on the size of the project, construction is generally completed within 18 to 24 months.

Construction Traffic

The impact of construction traffic is mitigated through the adoption of specific routing and control measures. The transportation of materials and use of local roads is minimised by sourcing construction materials on site where possible and through the use of existing farm tracks.

Health & Safety

Wind turbines are fully tested in advance of them being transported to the site. The construction site must also comply with all relevant safety regulations.
