Wind Farms

Wind Farm Installation

In recent years, there has been growing awareness of the need to reduce carbon emissions to slow down the pace of climate change resulting from human activities.

Renewable energy, is critical to progressing towards lower carbon emissions.

Wind energy has overtook hydropower to become the largest renewable generation source. Wind has been the world’s fastest growing renewable energy source, and this trend is expected to continue with falling costs of wind energy, energy security threats and the urgent international need to tackle CO2 emissions to prevent climate change.

Involvement

At DMJ Drainage Ltd, our team can be involved within the installation and construction phase of windfarms in various ways.

Our trenching machines are used to excavate narrow trenches and depths to 2.25 metres, at a fast pace, meaning a more efficient and cost effective method of excavation in relation to a 360 excavator, with the ability to trench hundreds of metres per day.

These open trenches are perfect to lay the cables in that are required to connect each turbine to each other, then to the nearest substation point on the National Grid. Our Gravel Carts are also used to back-fill the open trench with sand, and then the remaining surplus spoil is back-filled accordingly.

Recently, we have custom adapted one of our machines to be able to physically lay the required cables behind the trenchers. This in term making the whole installation process even more efficient and effective.
