Tony Gee completed the civil, structural and geotechnical detailed design of Brechfa Wind Farm on behalf of Farrans. Innogy UK engaged with Farrans to construct a wind farm comprising of 28 wind turbines in the Brechfa Forest, north of Carmarthen in South Wales.

Along with the turbines and their associated foundations, this scheme included the access road from the A485 to the site, wind farm site roads and a substation. Overhead power cables connect the main substation to the local electricity distribution network (operated by Western Power Distribution).

Utilising our extensive BIM capabilities, we provided integrated 3D models throughout the detailed design phase; a vital communication tool for use with our clients and allows changes to be made quickly. By combining our REVIT models, used for WTG base and buildings, and our Civils 3D models, in the Infraworks software package we produced accurate models of the final design.
