CLIENT: Balfour Beatty
SERVICE: Civil Engineering
In order to supply power to a new multi-million pound facility, Moorcroft was asked to provide a new cable trench for an 11Kv cable supply across the existing site and through to the new manufacturing complex.
Working under strict safety procedures and protocol, this contract involved the excavation of a service trench within a highly sensitive nuclear facility. The process involved the careful excavation of a 2 kilometre cable trench including surface reinstatements, working around multiple live services, while maintaining full site functionality for the client.
The project involved close collaboration with the client to overcome a number of complex technical challenges.
The project led the way for the use of vacuum excavation on site as a safe method of working and has led on to additional cable excavation works.
