Concrete pouring completed on the first Gayton le Marsh turbine bases

With the help of key members of Blackwell's dedicated supply chain, the site team working on the Gayton le Marsh Wind Farm project in Lincolnshire have successfully completed concrete pouring works to create 3 of the wind farm's 8 turbine bases.

Following the installation of 37 tonnes of reinforcing steel and a formwork mould at each of the 3 turbine locations, 202m3 of concrete was poured into each mould - a process taking 10 hours to complete for each of the bases. The concrete was delivered to the site at a rate of 20m3 an hour using 6 lorries and the loads were placed with a 32m concrete pump.

Elsewhere on the project, the team have begun the off-site cabling works under the supervision of electrical subcontractor, Athena PTS Limited. These operations involve the installation of 15 kilometres of ducting for 33kv cables, to connect the wind farm to the new substation building.

Blackwell is carrying out the Full Balance of Plant Gayton le Marsh project for repeat client, EnergieKontor. With an approximate total output of 20MW, it is estimated that the completed wind farm could save more than 20,717 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
