During October works continued to carry out any snag items, which are remedial works or items needing attention that were identified when the turbines are fully commissioned and inspected inside and out.
Re-instatement works continued at various locations around the site, and this month saw the completion of the removal of the stoned area, which had been used for storage of materials. Maintenance of the site roads continued with minor repairs being actioned as required. De-mobilisation work continued with the site being cleared of materials and any remaining debris.
To summarise the status, main Installation is complete on all thirty-three (33) turbines; commissioning works have been completed on all thirty-three (33) turbines; and all thirty-three (33) turbines have completed their reliability run, the 8-day performance test and final stage before the turbine is considered operational. The Centre and South-East areas of the wind farm have achieved operational completion, which equates to two of the five sections of the wind farm.
November will see a continuation of re-instatement works and a continuation of remedial works once the required materials are delivered to site. The certification required for each turbine is targeted by the end of the year – which will see the wind farm’s remaining sections achieve operational completion.
