Adding value to energy geotechnics

Adding value to energy geotechnicsAt AGEC we think our experience in energy geotechnics, specifically wind farm construction, is almost unparalleled. We’ve been involved in almost 200 separate projects and provide an extensive menu of services from project inception though to commissioning. However, our philosophy is the real key to success. It’s based around the intangible qualities we bring to the project. Namely:

  • Legacy experience
  • Breadth of in-house knowledge
  • Proactive approach to consulting
  • Up-front senior management (senior people in senior roles)
  • Proactive construction management
  • Best-for-project ethos

We identify project success as follows:

  • Delivery on scope
  • Reduced creep of scope through proactive approach
  • Technical nous leading to simpler and faster construction
  • Good communication – no in-fighting or “politics”
  • Some scope for innovation

It is the extent of our experience in construction in marginal areas of soft ground or peatland areas that really allows us to add value to wind farm projects. We undertaken high-level feasibility studies all the way through to detailed foundation design of the turbine base and associated civil / structural works. Check out our case studies for a glance at some of our projects.
