Hornsea 3 Cable Route Appointment
William Morfoot Ltd has been appointed to undertake both the design and the installation of the pre and post construction drainage requirements associated with the Hornsea 3 Windfarm in Norfolk. The project which is installing 231 wind turbines in the North Sea will generate enough electricity to power over 3 million homes in the UK.
After a competitive tender process, William Morfoot Ltd was selected to carry out all of the preliminary surveying and design work on the cable route which runs over a distance of 55km between the North Norfolk Coast and Norwich. Preliminary works have involved our team meeting with landowners and the team from Hornsea 3 to develop the drainage designs in the planning phases of the project which have taken place in 2022 and 2023. Subsequent work has seen our teams implement these designs on both a pre and post construction basis along the length of the cable corridor.
Works started on the pre construction drainage started in Spring 2023 and will continue throughout 2023 and into 2024. We are delighted to be playing a small part in assisting the UK reduce it’s carbon footprint and move towards greener energy production for the generations of the future.
