Wind Farms

Marais has a proven track record with Wind Farm projects ensuring successful connections that result in the supply of clean and sustainable renewable energy and help meet the challenges of climate change.

Our solutions involve the use of our SMC Wheel Trencher to help connect each wind turbine on a wind farm to the electricity grid. Wind farm installation includes 1 high voltage electrical cable, 1 fibre optic cable and one earth cable along the length of the trench.

Safety and cost effectiveness

Safety and cost effectiveness are important considerations when finding the right solution. A Marais solution includes:  

  • Between 1 and 4 cables/pipes per trench
  • Simultaneous installation of other services (FO, earth)
  • Simultaneous installation of cable protection and/or warning tap
  • Backfilling with thermally tested and/or excavated material
  • Minimum open trenching risks
  • Between 300 to 4,000 lm/day
