Offshore Wind Farm, Substation Structures

Walney 2 Offshore Wind Farm Onshore Substation and Cable Route

Kelvin Energy were engaged by Danish energy company DONG Energy to provide design services for the onshore substation and the onshore cable route and also to provide project management services. The Walney Offshore Wind Farm comprises of two phases with a total of 102 Turbines making it one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world.

Kelvin Energy undertook the role of Onshore Consents Management liaising with key stakeholders such as the Lancaster City Council, Environment Agency and all  local land owners. The cable route was to be constructed mainly through the streets of Fleetwood making the interface with the public very important and also making consents a very important aspect of the project.

The project also involved some complicated HDDs where we had to interface with Network Rail, the local and national highways department/agency. We had a site presence during the works and provided cost control support for the construction works.

Post construction our role included the compilation of as built data and compilation of construction information manuals of the project for handing over to the Operations and Management.
