The civil engineering firm used on-site batching plants to mix concrete on location, reducing vehicle journeys to and from the wind farm. It also played a key role in keeping to schedule despite heavy snowfall earlier in the year delaying operations. The wind farm is located just 10 miles from Jones Bros’ head office and training centre in Ruthin, Denbighshire.

Jones Bros site agent Rhys Roberts said: “I’m very proud of the team for its work during the last eight months to deliver these turbine bases to a high standard. Having our own batching plants has been hugely beneficial to not just ourselves but to local residents, who have experienced less traffic on the roads than they would have if we transported it in. For us, we were able to produce material at a rate to suit operations, and we could also monitor production for consistency and quality which helped to avoid unnecessary delays.”

In addition to the completion of the turbine bases, Jones Bros has also built 8km of new access tracks, upgraded 20km of existing tracks, and installed crane pads.

Once finished, the wind farm will generate electricity to meet the needs of up to 63,800 average UK homes per year.
