About the project
The wind farm at Coomacheo in County Cork comprised of eighteen 2.3 megawatt wind turbines. Following the completion of a third party review it was discovered that the wind turbine foundations had deteriorated and that there were a number of deficiencies in the original design. The approved solution was to enclose each base with a new reinforced concrete slab poured in ring-shaped sections linked to the existing base by post-tensioned circumferential tendons.
ChandlerKBS was commissioned with Kennedys Solicitors representing the insurers Royal Sun Alliance to provide cost verification and auditing of this £7 million project.
