The pace of growth in onshore wind is staggering. Over the last five years, turbine power output has doubled, hub heights have grown by over 50%, and rotors have lengthened to 170m in diameter.
Each phase of a wind farm’s construction is linked closely to the next. By considering the entire development process early during each project, design changes can be made that facilitate later savings.
The right logistics strategy minimizes road modifications. The right lifting approach cuts down on civil works. Smart on-site transportation reduces the time between each pad, shortening schedules.
Crucially, all of the above can reduce the time and cost pressure on each project, making each project more cost-effective, safe and reducing the cost of energy.
