Shortlisted for the New Installation – Energy & Communications Award is;
Eco Drill Ltd / Volker Infrastructure / A F Howlands Associates / Alresford Associates – Hornsea 2 Wind Farm Onshore
Eco-Drill Ltd undertook horizontal directional drilling at 62 locations along a 40 km route from Horseshoe Point, south of Grimsby, to the National Grid onshore substation in North Killingholme, installing 3 individual directional drills at each location for the Hornsea 2 Wind farm ( an addition to the world’s largest off shore windfarm). Each of the individual 186 drills involved installing 3 way 250mm SDR 11 electric cable duct in tre-foil configuration from 40m to 400m in length. The use of Radius Pipe systems “ClearDuct” pipe resulted in no internal de-beading required which meant the elimination of cctv survey.
