We have recently concluded our turbine base works at the Coire Na Cloiche Wind Farm site in the Scottish Highlands. This 13 turbine development, completed in a 7-week programme saw steel fixing finished in just 5 weeks with up to 4 concrete base pours in one week. The photo shows the early stages of rebar setting out at the beginning of the project.
Things are really starting to take shape at the anaerobic digester project in Derby. Our operatives have only been on site for 7 weeks and have already fixed and tied 180 tonnes of steel reinforcement and poured almost 1400m³ of concrete during construction of the in-situ concrete bases for the new tanks on site.
The pre cast section of the mooring dolphin at EDF Fife has been lifted into its offshore position and the concrete pours for the internal area have commenced. The location of the dolphin means that traditional concrete pumping methods are not possible so a barge is required to carry several skips of concrete from the quayside out to the site. This process is then repeated numerous times until the structure is complete.
The first reservoir tank at Llwyn Onn in Wrexham has been completed, this 74 metre long, 32 metre wide and 6 metre high tank is now ready to receive the 12 million litres of water it was designed to hold.
Our concrete works at the Sandford Hydroelectric project in Oxfordshire have been completed, the rest of the project is due for completion at the end of August when the site is connected to the National Grid.
We are delighted to have been awarded the formwork contract for the construction of two dolphin marine structures at Energy Park Fife for Graham Construction. The dolphin structures are isolated marine structures that extend above the surface of the water to provide a mooring facility to which vessels can be secured. This project is a great opportunity for us to showcase our marine and offshore formwork capabilities.
Our bridge works on the N17 – N18 Gort to Tuam motorway have been completed. Our part of this major project included the construction of 7 Overbridges, 2 Underbridges, 2 River bridges, 1 Railway bridge and 1 Pedestrian footbridge for clients Roadbridge Ltd. The project is due for completion in early 2018.
Murform are excited to be working on this interesting project as formwork contractors for new client Fergal Contracting Co Ltd. The project will see the restoration of the Lasher Weir near Sandford on the River Thames in Oxfordshire to its historic role as provider of clean energy. The hydro scheme will generate an impressive 1,600 MWh of renewable electricity per year, which is the equivalent demand of around 450 households.
Works have recently been completed at the Bhlaraidh Wind Farm site. After an exceptional effort from the Murform operates we were able to deliver the finished works well ahead of schedule, given the remote location of the project and the somewhat harsh weather conditions faced on site this showed tremendous determination from all involved.
The project concluded with the successful run of concrete works which has seen approximately 17,000m³ placed over the last 17 weeks to the 32 wind turbine foundations on site.
This has been another successful project for Murform working in partnership with main contractor RJ McLeod who were pleased with our continuing effort and commitment to the project.
The client Scottish & Southern Energy had this to say about Murform’s involvement in the project “On behalf of SSE, can I just say how impressed we were with Murform. It was my first experience of working with them and they are without a doubt the best steel fixers I have ever seen. Congratulations to all concerned in bringing the foundations in nearly 6 months earlier than predicted by the programme”
Our works have recently been completed at the Ely Leisure Village site in Cambridge, the new development featuring a 6 screen cinema and various restaurant units will be opening to the public in April 2017.
