Challenges will not get in way of Corrie job!

Despite weather challenges and now the situation with the Coronavirus lockdown, a new project for Corrie Construction is nearing completion.

And another project on the same site for a different contractor is also progressing well.

AJ Engineering has been contracted to fabricate, erect and clad a 110 Tonne steel building on the New Deer site which is part of the Moray Offshore Renewables East project.

The project involves the development of a 900MW offshore windfarm in the Moray Firth.

The windfarm is approximately 40km offshore with approximately 25km onshore underground cable between the landing point and proposed substation.

Project manager Allan Martin explained: “As part of this development Scottish and Southern Energy Network (SSEN) is seeking to establish a new 400kV substation at New Deer, adjacent to the developer’s 220/400kV substation and the existing Peterhead – Rothienorman overhead line. The network operates at 275kV and will be uprated to 400kV operation in the future.

He added: “We are doing well with the contract despite some challenges on site with weather and are 90 per cent complete with just doors and flashing/gutter details to complete.”

AMEY have also engaged with AJE’s services to assemble and erect four gantries at the New Deer site.

The gantries are 19m wide and 12m tall weighing approx. 7 Tonnes each.

Allan added: “We have been assembling the free issue material at or Waterford yard and these are now all but ready to go to site for erection. AMEY are keen to press on with these works and we will be ready for when we are given the green light.”
