Frodsham Wind Farm progressing well
The construction phase of the Frodsham Wind Farm Project in Cheshire is progressing well.
All 19 turbines bases have now been cast and 17 of the 19 crane pads are complete. Both substations are also in the final stages of construction.
Over the coming weeks work will focus on the remaining crane pads and electrical installations at the substations. The access roads on site will then be trimmed to final level in preparation for the delivery of the turbines in spring.
Cheetham Hill Construction has been employed by Peel Energy, a division of the Peel Group, as Principal Contractor on this Balance of Plant Contract, which includes managing engineering, design, construction and installation of civil, mechanical and electrical 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.
