    Knights Brown was awarded the balance of plant contract to construct three E82 wind turbines. This was a one-off project awarded by Fyne Futures as part of a community power scheme.

    The project involved the design and construction of various civil engineering works including but not limited to, modifications to the site entrance, improving existing forestry tracks, constructing new tracks, installation of a new site compound, crane hard standings as well as the turbine foundations.

    Most noticeably, Knights brown was involved in the installation of a new 21m “fit for purpose” bridge, a new 200m temporary bypass and alteration of site entrance to form a suitable access from the A83 to the C20.

    Electrical works were undertaken in conjunction with our partner, Powersystems UK Ltd. Works included both HV, LV and communications cabling works alongside all wind farm electrical installations for the substation.

    Following additional onsite ground investigation, Turbine one was micro-sited to a more suitable location. This location allowed for a much more suitable formation for the foundation to be established, as well as keeping the project on programme by avoiding the need to break out significant layers of rock.

    Other key features of the project involved:

    • Utilising local workforce to carry out various elements of the projects
    • Utilising onsite borrow pit following SI information, offering time and cost savings
    • Regular contact with local residents regarding upcoming works

    With Knights Brown in the role of principal contractor, the project team was highly praised by the client and their representatives throughout the contract.

    our sectors

    Sites are always very well presented. First impressions count and if a site looks well organised and clean when you arrive then generally this is applied throughout the management of the projects. Indeed, all five projects I am Cummins PM for, have been managed to a high standard and equally the safety records and standards are very good.
