Balfour Beatty’s civils division has won a share of a major package of work at Sellafield as well as a contract covering construction at Whitlee Wind Farm in southern Scotland.
The contractor is part of the SMF delivery team – in a joint venture with Babcock – that will build the silos maintenance facility at Sellafield under a contract worth up to £250 million.
Last year a Balfour Beatty/Babcock joint venture won an early contractor involvement scheme to build a waste storage facility at the Sellafield site in West Cumbria.
Meanwhile, Balfour Beatty has also been awarded the electrical infrastructure contract for the extension of Scottish Power Renewables’ Whitelee Wind Farm.
The firm will work in a joint venture with Irish team Sisk/Roadbridge to construct the substation and control building services and will also install around 400,000 metres of power and control cabling as more turbines are added to the site.
The extension project will add another 75 turbines to the existing 140 at the site south of Glasgow, raising the generating capacity to 539MW, enough to power about 300,000 homes.
Balfour Beatty previously worked on the first phase of the project.
