Construction process

Road Construction

Road Construction

To facilitate the delivery of the turbines, access roads will be constructed to each turbine location.

Foundation construction

Foundation construction

Each wind turbine foundation will be 19m in diameter and made of concrete and steel and placed below ground level. Each base will use over 60 truckloads of concrete.

Cabling

Cabling

The cables which will bring the power from each wind turbine to the substation will be buried underground.

Substation construction

Substation construction

All the cables will meet at the substation where the electricity will be transmitted onto the transmission line.

Wind turbine delivery

Wind turbine delivery

All turbine components will be routed along the N1 (National road).

Wind turbine parts

Wind turbine parts

On delivery, the turbine parts will be laid down alongside the respective foundations ready for lifting by crane.

Wind turbine lifting

Wind turbine lifting

It takes two cranes working together to build each turbine.

Completion

Completion

Once the turbine is built, it will be commissioned and tested and then put into operation.

Operation

Operation

Once construction is complete the project will operate for 20 years.
