Wear Point Wind Ltd

Location

Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire

Value

£1.8M

SemLogistics Milford Haven is the largest petroleum products storage facility in the United Kingdom. Knights Brown was awarded the balance of plant contract to develop Wear Point Wind Farm at this facility.

The scope of works included the design and construction of gravity reinforced concrete foundations, tracks, crane pads, 33kV electrical connections with a traditional brick and block substation on a reinforced concrete slab, inter turbine array cabling and a single span road bridge.

The construction area was situated immediately adjacent to Dragon LNG’s import, storage and regasification terminal. To facilitate the delivery and construction of one of the turbines we designed a delivery route that spanned live petro-chemical pipes transporting aviation fuel.

The construction of this whole project sourced products and services totalling £4.5m from the Welsh economy. This, coupled with its site-specific complexities, led to it being shortlisted for the ‘Outstanding Green Energy Project’ at the Renewable UK, Wales Green Energy Awards.

Knights Brown performed very well on this project in terms of quality, cost and time. The team worked very well as part of an integrated delivery team with the Employer to the benefit of the project

- Marc Bryan, Portsmouth City Council

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.

- Iain Brooks, Cummins

Site staff were pleased to have had Knights Brown on the team, they were proactive from day one to the end towards potential issues and responsive to a changing site environment for works.
