Who is Beatrice… or more to the point, what is Beatrice ?


Beatrice is a consortium of 84 Wind Turbines located 13.5 km from the Caithness coastline in the Outer Moray Firth. The project is a joint venture partnership between SSE Renewables, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and SDIC Power and is expected to generate enough electricity to power 450,000 homes. Totaling £2 . 6bn, Beatrice is one of the largest private investments Scotland has ever seen.

What are Hubbell supplying ?

Hubbell’s reputation for quality, reliability and longevity has been recognized with the purchase of multiple products from our ever-increasing brand portfolio. Chalmit lighting has been selected to supply nearly 1,000 of their best-selling luminaire, the Protecta LED. Boasting a highly energy efficient design and 80,000 maintenance-free hours of lighting, the Protecta LED is perfect for use in such inaccessible areas where upkeep is challenging.

 

Hawke International will be providing their HKH Control Stations. Hazcon products sold by Hawke International are all third-party tested to ensure they meet the highest quality standards including: ATEX, IECEx, IP66 and NEMA 4X.

"Hubbell can provide one solution for our customers from across our wide brand portfolio."

Andy Brown, Head of Commercial

 

And last but by no means least… Beatrice will be adorned with Hawke International’s market leading 501/453 Universal Cable Gland. With hundreds of thousands of this Cable Gland sold every month, the Universal boasts a variety of features including its patented Reversible Armour Clamp that made it the obvious choice for Beatrice.

Hubbell Harsh and Hazardous UK’s Head of Commercial, Andy Brown commented, “We’re very proud to have been selected for this esteemed project with supply across the Hubbell Harsh and Hazardous brands. Chalmit for the lighting and Hawke International for the Cable Glands and Control Stations. It’s a testament to the hard work of our teams across the Hubbell brands. Hubbell can really provide one solution for our customers from across our wide brand portfolio; Beatrice is a prime example of this. We’re delighted to be a part of a project that will benefit so many people.”

Project Update

Offshore construction began in April 2017 and over three quarters of the foundation piles have now been installed. Restoration works have begun at the Thomas Telford buildings in Wick Harbour which will become the farms operational base. The site is due to be fully operational by 2019, and with the project constantly hitting milestones, Beatrice is still on track.
