We catch up with Eryl Roberts, Project Manager for Jones Bros / Balfour Beatty for the latest news from site.
“Works are currently progressing on schedule with a lot of activity still ongoing. Thanks to some fantastic summer weather, the site team have now completed the main concrete pours at 26 turbine foundations. 14 of these have had the smaller upstand pour completed and are now ready to have the turbines bolted into place in early 2016. In addition to this we have opened works on a further 10 turbine locations and implemented 12 kms of brand new access track.
It has been a long process, but we are pleased that the final turbine has now been installed. This means that the installation team have placed 684 large components over the last year. The main challenge has been the unpredictable weather onsite of course.
The team continues to bring the turbines into the operational phase step by step.
