Providing the answer to access issues at Scottish Wind Farm
We have provided the perfect solution for one of Scotland’s major sustainability initiatives after being selected over two other civils manufacturers to create an economical access road at a new Wind Farm.
The brand-new wind farm has been constructed in North Lanarkshire, Scotland and will power around 40,000 homes in the area. Eight turbines are around 150m high and will generate 38mw of sustainable electricity – enough to meet the renewable targets set out by the Scottish Government.
Before work could begin, haul roads needed to be created to carry the heavy plant and machinery required for the project. After carrying out an inspection of the area, we identified that due to the ground’s low CBR values and deep levels of peat, these access roads would need to be floated. Additionally, there was a sloped area on the site that was likely to cause difficulties for crane pads if left without reinforcement.
