We have recently been working for Breheny Civil Engineering on their Outer Harbour works for Peel Ports Great Yarmouth. Breheny’s contract is for the construction of primary infrastructure and ground works for the offshore Galloper Wind Farm and East Anglia ONE Wind Farm projects. The contract includes the delivery of a yard storage and marshalling area, as well as the installation of heavy-lift quay facilities.Last year, ScottishPower Renewables selected Peel Ports Great Yarmouth as its port of choice for the construction and installation activities for its £2.5 billion East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm.
The turbines for the project will be supplied and installed by Siemens, which also announced Great Yarmouth as the assembly and installation base for Galloper Wind Farm which is currently being constructed by innogy SE on behalf of the project partners.
(Camfaud have had another involvement with the Galloper Wind Farm project – pumping concrete for North Midland Construction on their contract to construct a new onshore substation to link the export cables from the wind farm to the National Grid.)Siemens will supply 56 six-megawatt turbines for Galloper Wind Farm and 102 seven-megawatt turbines for the East Anglia ONE Wind Farm, which will have the combined capacity to generate enough energy for up to 836,000 homes a year.
To showcase the work that they have been carrying out for Peel Ports Great Yarmouth, Breheny commissioned a video which, shows a Camfaud boom pump working to construct an external slab for the yard storage and marshalling area. And, by happy coincidence, the video also shows our sister company Premier Concrete Pumping feeding a CFA piling rig of their customer Bachy Soletanche.
