Located on Eaglesham Moor, just 20 minutes from Central Glasgow, Whitelee Wind Farm is set to grow again. The second extension of 75 turbines is scheduled to be completed at the end of the year, expanding the wind farm to a total of 215 turbines
Working with our partner, Balfour Beatty Engineering Services, Boston Networks has provided a specialist fibre optic commissioning service to prepare, terminate and test pre installed single mode fibre optic cabling at each of the 75 new turbines.
Working in extreme terrain the Boston Networks engineers delivered the project on time, within budget and within the exacting tolerance specific to the bespoke and challenging project.
The overall extension will see Europe’s largest onshore wind farm increase its overall capacity up to 593MW, generating enough clean, green energy to power over 330,000 homes.
