At Clocaenog Forest Wind Farm, there is an approximate total of 17,500 cubic metres of concrete being used for the Wind Turbine Foundations, which would lead to some left over concrete from ‘make-up loads’ or rejected loads.

Therefore, instead of the left over concrete going to waste each day, we have adopted a method of utilising waste and the left over concrete from the Turbine Foundation Pours by using cube moulds to create concrete building blocks, which are currently being used on site as edge protection, walls for aggregate stock bays and other uses.

The future intention with these blocks is that they will be moved to a future project, which will be starting soon, to be used in the construction of some of the concrete structures on site.

The current estimate is that 200 of these 0.45 cubic metre will have been made saving 90 cubic metres of concrete going to waste during the course of the project.
