In 2015 ABB and Balfour Beatty Utility Servcies worked with the National Grid on an ambitious project to install the cable that links the wind farm to the power grid at Hirwaun Industrial Estate in Wales.
It proved a challenging engineering problem. To protect a major road passing underneath, the team built the largest scaffolding and netting in the history of National Grid. The full project, including the transfer of the cable from temporary to new pylon was recorded by Regenology.
The film was used by engineers and management from National Grid to monitor the progress of the pylon construction. It also provided an invaluable training video tool for staff.
