Points of note
Working togetherThis project brought together multiple parts of the Siemens' business (Service, Blade, Offshore, Real Estate) to one common goal: delivering turbines from the site to the UK's offshore wind farms.
Early deliveryKey to success was the ability to start blade manufacture as early as possible. Close working between the contractor and Siemens fit-out teams, with phased access and possession, enabled the first blade to be removed from its mould at the same time as practical completion was issued for the whole facility.
“A highly complex mix of requirements from a large number of demanding stakeholders within Siemens, alongside technical challenges of the construction itself have been successfully delivered by a truly collaborative project team.”
“Mace provided a highly skilled and dedicated team of construction professionals who have worked with us seamlessly across all three projects here at Hull to achieve our ambitious timeline. We have worked as one team and all have been passionate about delivering the project. ”
