BJRE’s involvement in wind turbines can be traced back decades to the early 1980’s when Bryan Rendall, then a young budding engineer, started experimenting with small scale wind turbines on Orkney. Lucas Freelites and Winchargers featured amongst these, and laid the foundation stones for a long involvement with wind energy spanning 4 decades. Our experience in large scale wind energy (multi megawatt scale) dates back to the 1990’s when we were involved in the 3 MW LS1 project on Burgar Hill, followed by a number of windfarm construction projects in Europe. To date, the wind turbine count sits at around 1,500, with a large team, able to handle projects from a few kW to many MW.
We also work heavily in the marine sector, as the electrical consultant and contractor to the European Marine Energy Centre on Orkney, BJRE have amassed a wide range of experience in terminating and testing submarine cables for both EMEC and the developers of wave and tidal devices who use the facilities that EMEC provide. Whilst onshore wind farm cable terminating and testing is relatively straight forward, our work on subsea cables requires higher levels of expertise.
