Wrekin geogrids used to support sustainable energy development

We have recently supported the construction of a new multi-million-pound wind farm in West Lothian with materials that support the construction of its track road.

Upon completion in 2022, it will be one of the largest onshore farms in the UK. Work at Longhill Burn wind farm in West Calder started in April 2021, with operations and management delivered by leading wind farm business, Energiekontor UK.

During the early phases of the project, due to the remote location of the wind farm, a track road was created to carry vehicles, machinery and goods needed for construction. Bolton-based contractor, A E Yates that was assigned to the project, called on our technical team to supply the necessary Geogrids – also used at sister site Dalquhandy wind farm near Coalburn.

Our 4.5m wide geogrid – SX 3030 - perfectly suited this project, cutting out unnecessary delays and costs.
