In order to meet the UK's renewable energy targets, some 5,000 extra wind turbines will need to be manufactured, tested and installed by 2020.

At the time on this announcement, NaREC's aim was to make the North East a prime location within the UK, for offshore wind energy, research and development.

With an investment of over £135 Million, new facilities have now been constructed at Blyth by Shepherd Construction, with the final test facility becoming operational in 2013.

As part of the framework, MJF have supported Shepherd at every stage of the phased handover. We completed an initial builders / industrial clean to Project Nautilus back in April 2012, which was the smaller of two test rigs on site.

During the summer we also completed a further industrial clean to a new 100m blade testing facility. This steel structure encompassed a total of 5700 m2 with an impressive 4660 tonne of structural steel undergoing a programme of decontamination and degreasing.

In November 2012, we completed works on the final facility, Project Fujin, which stands a staggering 32 Metres in height. This is the worlds most advanced R&D Hub for the offshore wind industry, capable of testing ratings of up to 15MW. The test bed itself is 43 Metres x 12 Metres with a pile foundation of over 4 Metres.

Key Services, Qualified Technicians and RAMS provided as part of this package included:

  • High Level Clean
  • Steelwork Clean
  • Provision of MEWP Equipment
  • CSCS Technicians
  • IPAF Technicians
  • PASMA Technicians

"As the first regional contractor to achieve Achilles, I was keen to experience the level of service MJF delivered. I was not disappointed."

Neil Matthius - Project Manager
