Newark windfarm

Adding to its already large portfolio of successful wind farm installs, Aarsleff Ground Engineering, one of the UK’s leading contractors of driven precast piles and ground engineering solutions, has been awarded the foundations contract for the Newark Wind Farm, Hawton, Newark-on-Trent.

When complete, the three-turbine install will generate enough clean energy to power the equivalent of 5,400 homes, adding much-needed clean and renewable energy and helping further reduce the UK’s reliance on fossil fuel.

Works on the contract were awarded to Aarsleff by Main Contractor R.G. Carter Civil Engineering Ltd. Specifically, Aarsleff is required to install 162no. piles, which equates to 54no. for each of the three wind turbine bases. Piles installed will be 338mm diameter open-ended steel tubes, with an anticipated pile length ranging from 18 to 24m long founding in Sandstone.

The project was designed in close collaboration with the Main Contractor and commenced 27 June 2016. Aarsleff is expected on-site for approximately 3½ weeks and has deployed its Junttan PM20, fitted with a 5t accelerated hammer.

Speaking about the project, Chris Primett, Managing Director Aarsleff said: “We are pleased to be involved in yet another wind farm installation. It further compounds Aarsleff’s growing expertise in this sector, as well as presenting an opportunity to highlight the company’s new strapline “Smart Sustainable Solutions,” which is a core objective for all of Aarsleff’s activity going forward.”
