The UK’s first windfarm at Delabole in Cornwall recently marked its 25th anniversary and in that time its produced enough electricity to boil 3.b billion kettles. Its first 10 turbines were each rated at 0.4 megawatts were now the biggest turbines are rated at 8 MW and there are over 1000 onshore projects across the UK.
Not only a more common sight across the countryside but a part of a renewable energy industry that accounts for a quarter of the UK’s electricity generation.
An industry that Setters have been closely involved with from its beginnings with key staff undertaking managerial roles on site as the expansion of windfarms grew.
Throughout the 25 years, Setters has become recognised as a leading provider of safety management consultancy and accredited training in the industry working with and alongside companies such as RWE, Siemens and Dong Energy
The 385-kilometre subsea power cable, a crucial part of the Western Link HVDC project, recently reached shore in North Ayrshire. The project will allow the transfer of renewable energy from Scotland to England and Wales in large volumes to meet peak demand.
Setters were chosen to design and manage safety management systems by the two organisations on one of the UK’s largest construction projects of late with a total value of £1.8 billion
The link will use DC technology to transmit the electricity efficiently across the large distance but will be converted to AC at each end of the route and two converter stations are being created as part of the project. The design and construction of the cables and converter stations are being undertaken by a consortium of industry-leading companies, Siemens and Prysmian.
