Frodsham Wind Farm Project receives CEEQUAL Excellent Award

03 Jul 2017

The Frodsham Wind Farm Project has been awarded a CEEQUAL Excellent Whole Team Award.

The Balance of Plant Contract undertaken by CHC required engineering, design, construction and installation of civil and electrical infrastructure for the wind farm in Frodsham, Cheshire. 

The nineteen turbine wind farm is one of England’s largest onshore generating stations, as well as being the largest in the Cheshire region, with a total of over 50MW installed capacity across the site as a whole.

As part of the construction, CHC worked with client Frodsham Wind Farm Limited to achieve an excellent CEEQUAL sustainability rating of 77.4%.

CEEQUAL is the sustainability assessment, rating and awards scheme for civil engineering and the CEEQUAL assessment takes into account a number of factors, which include; ecology and biodiversity, people and community, land use and landscape and energy and carbon.

This is the third consecutive CEEQUAL Excellent Award received by the Company and upholds the high standard set by our previous awards.

The award was presented at the official opening ceremony for the wind farm by Richard Coackley CBE, Director of Energy Development, Power & Energy, EMIA at AECOM and former Chairman of CEEQUAL to CHC Contracts Manager, Mike Goodier and Peel Energy Development Director, John England.

Lucinda Farrington, Director of Seriously Green Ltd and CEEQUAL Verifier for the project said: “It was clear from the evidence provided that the project had made a considerable effort to mitigate against long term impacts, from supporting the local communities through the Community Benefit Fund, through accounting for flood risk by designing for greater-than-predicted climate change, to protecting and enhancing the natural environment for ecology as far as possible (recognised by the Wildlife Trust’s Biodiversity Benchmark Award).”
