Wind Turbine Installation


“The installation team under a lot of pressure were brilliant” – Ian Moulds, Lincolnshire Farmer


Earthmill Ltd is the UK’s leading agricultural wind turbine installer. Every installation project is carried out by our in-house team of engineers, who are all fully qualified and manufacturer trained for each turbine model. This allows us to quality control the installation process and ensure a superb service.


 

Earthmill's team of qualified wind turbine installers prepare to place the tower.Installation of a turbine in key stages:

What makes Earthmill unique is that each customer is assigned a dedicated project manager. The project manager will be responsible for the smooth coordination of all aspects of the turbine installation including planning, engineering, manufacture, installation, commissioning and the electrical connection into your local distribution network (DNO). 

We have installed over 220 wind turbines and constantly seek to improve our methods and processes to deliver an efficient and effective project experience, saving you time and money.

Groundworks

Our in-house team of civil engineers are responsible for all aspects of ground investigation and borehole sampling to establish ground suitability and bespoke foundation design. Following the initial design stage we will then complete the access roads, cable trenches, turbine foundation installation and any grid enablement works including substation foundations and buildings.

Electrical installation

Our experienced in-house electrical team will coordinate the complex task of dealing with your local distribution network operator (DNO) on your behalf, in order to get the most cost effective connection agreement to enable your turbine to be connected to the grid. 

We carry out all the electrical design in-house from the feasibility stage to the turbine generating energy and ultimately earning you money. By managing this process on your behalf it ensures that your installation meets the strict requirements of current British Standards.  

By having our own in-house electrical design team we are not reliant on third party design consultants. We have therefore been able to reduce the cost to our clients for the design and installation work by over £40,000 on many of our projects. 

Wind Turbine Erection

With over 50 years experience in the wind industry, our wind turbine engineers have completed over 220 installations throughout the UK and take full responsibility for all aspects of the turbine construction. 

We have consistently improved our processes and efficiency. As a result of our experience a typical mechanical build will take an average of only 2 days to complete. 

Commissioning

With a team of fully qualified electrical engineers and turbine manufacturer trained commissioning engineers we are able to commission and G59 test all our installations ourselves, eliminating the requirement for third party contractors. 

Contract Review

In order to be able to evaluate and improve the service we provide, we review each installation with the client two to three months after installation. This enables us to constantly apply fresh feedback to our operational, service and customer care policies. This is extremely important to us as our relationship with customers lasts for at least 20 years following installation.
