Description

Green Cat Contracting were appointed as Principal Contractor to deliver the BoP works for 12no Enercon E53 turbines on a design and build basis, including associated drainage, roads, hardstanding’s, cabling, sub station works and electrical infrastructure.

The works required significant management and clearance of areas of agricultural forest, as well as work in difficult ground conditions. Deep Glacial Till, in excess of 8.0m in areas, was present, requiring substantial reworking to provide a competent founding medium for the roads and turbine foundations. A shallow water table and artesian aquifer conditions were also considerable barriers to the project.
