Notice of commencement of works

Moy Wind Farm – notice of commencement of works

Following our Meet Eneco Days in April 2014, we would like to inform you that the construction of the 60MW Moy Wind Farm is due to commence on the Moy Estate on 26 May 2014.

We have appointed the locally based construction company, Morrison Construction, to carry out the civil engineering works. The initial civil and electrical works will extend through until July 2015, following which turbine installation will commence thereafter and we anticipate this should be complete by March 2016.
Prior to the completion of our new access route across the Moy Burn, by the end of July 2014, the main access to site will be off the B9154 public road via the existing estate road over the railway.

The southern junction off the A9 will be used by traffic to reach the B9154 with construction traffic not permitted to use the northern junction. 
Initial construction activities on site will consist of:

• Establishment of site offices and compound
• Import crushed rock for road and hard-standing construction
• Construction of new access track and bridge from the B9154 to the site compound
• Opening on site borrow pits to obtain fill material for road construction
• Construction of the new access tracks and structures to the wind farm site
• Construction of the on site control building

During construction, anticipated from 26 May 2014 until March 2016, under current health and safety legislation there will be phased access management restrictions in place on and around the site as agreed with the Highland Council access officer. Information boards will be displayed at strategic access points on the path network to advise of the access restrictions in place.
Construction information updates will be issued locally via the Community Councils and on the Moy Wind Farm website www.moywindfarm.co.uk. 
In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact Ruaraidh Taylor, using the contact details below, if you have any concerns regarding our construction activities.
