  • Sector:Energy

  • Location:East Lothian, Scotland
  • Value:£1.2m

To facilitate the connection of the new Aikengall II Windfarm, the existing Crystal Rig 400/132kV Substation in East Lothian needed to be extended. This was done through the construction of a new 132kV substation at Westerdod and the installation of a 132kV cable between both substation sites. Barhale were engaged by Iberdrola Engineering and Construction (IEC) to deliver a new control building and all associated civil works.

The Barhale team were tasked with delivering all civil works associated
with the new 132kV substation; prior to the installation of all electrical
equipment by a third party ‘Balance of Plant’ contractor.
