CHC awarded prestigious wind farm project
Cheetham Hill Construction is proud to announce that it's been awarded the Frodsham Wind Farm Project in Cheshire for client Peel Energy, a division of the Peel Group.
Like its previous wind farm projects, CHC will be Principal Contractor on this Balance of Plant Contract, which will include managing engineering, design, construction and installation of civil infrastructure.
This is CHC's biggest wind farm project to date, with 19 wind turbines up to a height of 125m being installed on the site. Consent has been granted for turbines up to 3MW capacity, a total of up to 57MW installed capacity. The wind farm will be one of the largest in England and the largest in the Cheshire West and Chester area.
The construction of the wind farm is scheduled to commence in April, with the main construction works taking place in summer 2015 and turbine erection expected to be carried out in 2016.
An active approach to sustainable procurement and integration of the local supply chain is being implemented on the project. Working together with Peel Energy and Cheshire West and Chester Council, CHC will be looking to involve local suppliers and subcontractors in the project wherever possible.
This project will also be assessed under the CEEQUAL Scheme and CHC is hoping to repeat the success of its previous CEEQUAL projects.
