Totalling over 1500 wind turbines and over 1000 MVA of associated substations and collection systems, BJRE Ltd, established in Orkney in 1994, has an extensive portfolio of renewable energy projects ranging from householder and community energy schemes for off-grid Scottish islands, to multi megawatt offshore wind farms with locations stretching from California to Australia.
We specialise in electrical and renewable engineering from design and supply through to construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance. BJRE’s experience includes, grid connections of single turbines, large substations up to 180MVA/220kV, biomass, wave and tidal power, including the European Marine Energy Centre, as well as this we can provide full fibre optic network solutions as well as microwave and VHF/UHF Radio.
In Orkney, since 2000, BJRE have operated the NEG – Micon turbines at Burgar Hill BJRE have worked alongside the manufacturers, NEG Micon since the inception of this project, and provided extensive design and logistical support.
BJRE Ltd are an NERS accredited contractor and are authorised distributors of Wind Energy Solutions turbines.
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 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 3MW LS1 project on Burgar Hill, followed by a number of windfarm construction projects in Europe. To date, the wind turbine count sits at around 1500, with a 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.
