Construction activities on site are progressing well with eight wind turbine foundation concrete pours now complete. Installation of steel reinforcement for the wind turbine foundations continues and the construction of hardstands at each foundation is also underway in preparation for the installation of wind turbines. Our first wind turbine is expected to be erected by the end of October.
Work on the 11km transmission line to connect Granville Harbour Wind Farm to the electricity grid is almost complete. Helicopter stringing operations are progressing well and the installation of all transmission line poles and towers is expected to be finished by mid October.
