Balfour Beatty wins £35M wind farm project!
Posted on: 04/03/2016

International infrastructure group Balfour Beatty have been awarded £35 million worth of contracts by Scottish Hydro Electric (SHE) Transmission. The firm have been awarded the contract for the design and construction of the Bhlaraidh and Beinneun Wind Farm Connections Project, which is close to Fort Augustus, Scotland.

Responsible for the electrical transmission network connections to the new wind farms, work will include the design and construction of a new substation, refurbishment or alterations of two existing substations, the design and installation of a new underground cable system, and an overhead line refurbishment. The two wind farms would be able to power the equivalent of over 90,000 homes in total.

The two wind farms will feed renewable energy generated by wind power directly into the national grid network, contributing towards the 2020 target for 100% of Scotland’s electricity and 11% of Scotland’s heat demand being generated by renewable sources.

With main construction work set to start in April, the new infrastructure is programmed to be delivered in early 2017; at its peak, the project will employ 120 people.
