    SUMMARY OF WORKS AND SERVICES UNDERTAKEN:

    • Six Enercon E92 turbine Civils Balance of Plant project for Enercon in Moray
    • Large 11kV base for Graeper precast substation
    • 4.5km of access track
    • Crane pads
    • Site entrance widening works
    • Large cut and fill required for earthworks
    • CAR licenses for SEPA culvert permits

    The wind farm project involved the upfront coordination phase to the assist the client with the discharge of planning conditions, both pre and post commencement.

    The works comprised the design and construction of all site infrastructure for the delivery, installation and commissioning of six E92 wind turbines. Other aspects included a widened site entrance off the B9115, 500m of access track upgrade and a further 4km of access track on the site for the turbines.

    Extensive onsite drainage works were required to allow discharge of the site planning conditions and also to manage surface water run off. The 11kV substation was designed and constructed to the SPEN design constraints.

    Knights Brown was also appointed by Enercon to install the E92 Enercon designed foundations and grouted load rings.

    Extensive earthworks were required to form the design gradients required for turbine delivery. The site was sympathetically reinstated to allow the natural flora and fauna to regenerate.

    Knights Brown played a fundamental part in the coordination process for the design and agreement of the off site road works that were required off the A9 for which BEAR Scotland coordination was required and also Moray for the B9115 widening works.

    The site had ecology issues in the form of badger setts in the location of the proposed borrow pit, which meant that all aggregate had to be sourced from off site.

    The project was delivered on time and to budget, with no accidents and incidents.

    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.
