KTL collaborates with a leading electricity company to install four 110kV towers and one 400kV end mast tower in Co. Laois. This project came with various challenges. KTL employed both an ecologist and an archaeologist. This was to comply with the planning regulation as set out in the Construction and Environmental Management Plan (CEMP). For the excavation works, an archaeologist was on site to inspect the groundworks, and this was done routinely before any excavation work took place. All excavations were then checked at each point before each subsequent dig. The ecologist assessed the location and gave recommendations to proceed with a minimal footprint. They also visited regularly to inspect the KTL methods to ensure they were aligned to CEMP. David Hughes, KTL Project Manager said, “We closely collaborated with the client to ensure this project ran smoothly and effectively. We communicated regularly with the client and together with KTL’s highly experienced team to come up with solutions to the many challenges we faced and did our utmost to drive the project forward. It was also forefront that we left the environment the same way we found it and we ensured every effort was done to achieve this.” Read more: #KTL #ConnectingCommunities #Utilities, #Electricity
