Wryde Croft Wind Farm

Wryde Croft Wind Farm is 13 turbine on shore project, situated north east of Thorney, between Crowland and Parson Drove. Each turbine stands at 100m tall, and have a combined generation capacity of 26 MW, capable of generating sufficient renewable electricity to power more than 15,000* UK homes.

Our multidisciplinary design team provided detailed design for the scheme including highway modifications, over 7.5 km of unbound access track, granular working platforms for piling rigs and cranes, watercourse crossings, sitewide SuDS strategy and sub-station buildings.

At CDG we have developed an innovative method of crane hard-standing design and in-situ design validation via large diameter plate testing, modelling the static pressure applied to the ground during lifting operations.

Using our teams in house specialist materials engineering expertise, we supported the contractor on site with managing the large volume turbine foundation concrete pour operations.

*Based on a capacity factor of 39.1% and DECC average annual home equivalent of 4128kWh.
