Stratus Environmental have designed and built a single wind turbine in mid Wales working with Sirius Remediation on the balance of plant contract won through a competitive tender process.

The construction of the 500kw EWT DW52 wind turbine involved designing and constructing the access road, crane pad, turbine foundation and brick built combined substation/transformer housing together with the grid connection works.

Stratus Environmental performed the role of Principal Designer whilst its sister company Sirius Remediation acted as Principal Contractor providing the plant and construction team for all aspects of the civil engineering works.

The project was delivered on programme with the turbine obtaining its completion certificate and passing the G59 test for connection to the grid on 30 June, several weeks ahead of the accreditation deadline for the turbine commissioning.

This project represents the fifth wind turbine successfully designed and managed to completion by Stratus Environmental and the third undertaken as part of a design and build contract with Sirius Remediation.
