A background on our latest project…
We have just completed a 2-year contract with Dong Energy on Westermost Rough Wind Farm. The project began in May 2014 with the installation of the main export cable we designed and built. Our bespoke design of Quadrant scaffolding assisted the route of the cable from the sea bed to the terminal on the substation.
The offshore wind farm is located 8km east of the East Yorkshire coastline past Withernsea and Hull. 35 turbines make up the wind farm generating 6MW per turbine. The wind farm covers a total area of 35km2 and generates enough electricity to power 180,000 UK homes.
