Grontmij has won a contract with Banks Renewables for the pre-construction work at two wind farms in Lanarkshire, Scotland.
The firm will undertake data analysis to provide information for the civil engineers to be able to plan the installation of the wind turbines and electricity sub-stations at Middle Muir and Kype Muir Wind Farms.
The 104MW Kype Muir Wind Farm, just South of Strathaven, will have 26 turbines. The 51MW Middle Muir Wind Farm, north of Crawfordjohn, will have 15 turbines.
The deal includes the use of a local sub-contractor and a work placement for a school leaver.
Grontmij is to interpret data gathered by Raeburn Drilling and Geotechnical, to help the civil engineers who will plan the installation of the turbines and substations.
Grontmij senior renewables engineer Kathryn Sanders, said: “Grontmij has supported Banks with our geotechnical and civil engineering expertise on many wind farm projects. It continues to be great to work alongside them from the start, particularly as they pay attention during the development of their projects and are willing to adapt to accommodate local concerns.”
