NERS Accreditation Success

21 May 2015

We have recently gained partial National Electricity Registration Scheme (NERS) accreditation for cable laying operations. This will allow us to further expand our range of specialist services for our clients, particularly in the renewable energy sector.

A large number of hydro schemes and wind farms constructed to date have been completed in relatively low impact areas, but potential new sites are more challenging because they are in environmentally sensitive areas such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Special Protection Areas (SPA) and Special Areas of Conservation (SAC).

Hydro schemes are something we’ve been involved with for a while and we expect things to remain busy in this sector over the next few years. The combination of our experience in environmentally sensitive areas such as national parks, moorland, high ground and rugged rural locations, combined with our civil expertise and now our NERS accreditation, means we are well-placed to take on this new wave of renewable energy work.
