Glenconway Wind Farm, which was constructed by Gael Force Renewables Ltd, a joint venture between McLaughlin & Harvey and W&H Alexander, has won a CEEQUAL Excellent Award.
The project, which began in May 2012 and was completed in October 2013, comprised of the design and construction of a 46 MW-rated wind farm which included 20 2.3 MW-rated Siemens turbines, enough to power 46,000 homes, and associated infrastructure including 9km of access tracks, a 33KV sub-station, operational store building and a 10 metre clear span bridge.
The scheme participated in the CEEQUAL ‘Whole Project Award’ and received an excellent score of 83% in July 2014. This is the first wind farm in Northern Ireland to participate in and be recognised by the CEEQUAL scheme ‘Whole Project Award’.
The CEEQUAL Excellent award was presented on 4 December 2014 at the ICE Annual Dinner by David Porter, ICE Chairman, and David Balmforth, ICE President.
