12 New Wind Turbines for Windy Rig Wind Farm, Scotland

12 New Wind Turbines for Windy Rig Wind Farm, Scotland

Our recently acquired Terex Demag TC2800 was the main Crane on site at Windy Rig Wind Farm, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland to support the installation of 12 Wind Turbines on behalf of AIS Wind Energy, as well as a number of other assist cranes and trucks that were responsible for the safe movement of all equipment between hard stands.

As the weather on wind farms can be sporicidal, optimising the weather windows was key to progressing on the project while working hard to ensure the project was delivered safely and efficiently for all.
