Jones Bros bags Brenig bounty
Contract secured to build 37.6MW wind farm in Wales for CGN Europe
Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK has won a contract to build the 37.6MW Brenig wind farm in Denbighshire in Wales.
Work is underway to upgrade 6km of existing access roads, build turbine bases, carry out on-site cabling works and construct a control building.
Jones Bros said the bulk of the work will done by March 2018, after which turbine deliveries will start.
It expects to have 40 workers on site during peak construction and will establish a temporary quarry to source material for the turbine bases and minimise vehicular journeys to and from the site.
The 16-turbine project is scheduled to be complete in September 2018.
It is the first wind farm to be built in the UK by Chinese developer CGN Europe, Jones Bros said.
Jone Bros project manager Eryl Roberts said: “We are due to start installing the steel reinforcement for the foundations in early September.
“Each turbine base will require 500 cubic metres of concrete and 48 tonnes of reinforcing steel.”
