Hornsea Project One – Complete

Posted on: July 4th, 2018 by Paul Wilson

The Hornsea Wind Farm Project One (Hornsea Project One) is the first project to be developed in the Hornsea Zone, with a total generation capacity of 1,200MW once complete.

We were contracted by J Murphy & Sons (Principal Contractor) to provided 64 HDD drills at various areas throughout the route. This included 92 separate drills with a bore containing 3 x 225mm and 1 x 90mm PE HV Electric duct, 3 circuits at each location. We encountered every possible obstacle which includes; Canals, Rivers, Roads, Motorways, HP Gas, Railways, HV Cables, Water Mains, Primary Sub Station and Environmental Constraints.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Eco Drill team, the support functions, J Murphy & Sons and Ørsted (previously known as Dong Energy) for their hard work and assistance.

Hornsea – Project One Wind Farm

Posted on: November 22nd, 2017 by Paul Wilson

Eco Drill are very proud to be part of Hornsea Project One Wind Farm, once operational it will become the largest offshore Wind Farm in the world – the first to exceed 1GW in capacity.

Orsted (Formally Dong Energy) are the Asset Owner who appointed J Murphy & Sons as Principal Contractor.

We will deliver 192 separate drills at 64 locations each with a bore containing 3 x 225mm and 1 x 90mm PE HV Electric duct, 3 circuits at each location equating to almost 14km of drilling negotiating Canals, Rivers, Roads, Motorways, HP Gas, Railways HV cables, Water Mains and a Primary Sub Station.

We’ve completed 46 of the 64 drills.

This week we’re drilling a 370m profile across a major roundabout utilising the power of our Ditchwitch JT 100. We’ve chosen a wireline option for steering control. This option was preferred to our Digitrak F5 for two reasons; the obvious is that we don’t want our tracking engineer exposed to any risk with live traffic, the second was that the profile has a challenging radius and we wanted to ensure maximum accuracy through the turn also maintaining the required depth and separation constraints.

The New Year brings two Network Rail crossings and the conclusion of our drilling programme at Hornsea in February.
