Huawei – ESN5153, Creagan Mor

Client: Huawei
Project length: 2 Weeks
Project value: £58k
Completion date: May 2018
HF divisions involved: Comms

Brief project description: Complete site build, including civil works, incorporating fencing, concrete plinth, electrical works and cable ducts.

Installation of a new 12.5m non-standard Hutchinson telegraph pole with antennas at 11.5m and dish at 9.2m. Installation of Blenheim and Link A/C cabinets on new concrete plinths.

Project Challenges: The biggest challenge we had with this project was the access route. The only vehicular route to site was via a steep and narrow track, which incorporated a bridge with a 3 ton weight limit. We overcame this challenge with the use of multiple helicopter lifts from a drop-off point close to the site location.

An additional challenge encountered was an active and prestigious shooting estate being in close proximity to the proposed site location. Our access was actually through the estate, therefore all movement to and from the site had to be coordinated in conjunction with the shooting estate management. We had a short window, when shooting was not taking place, to enable us to carry out our work.

The high-level plan of works was as follows:

  • Track machine to site suitable to excavate site and stand pole.
  • Helicopter materials to site, including the Hutchinson telegraph pole and cabinets
  • 3 Helicopter lifts (1 for materials, 1 for concrete, 1 for pole)
  • Stand pole
  • Complete site
  • Track machine back out
