After a successful tender submission, Nairn Construction Ltd were employed to provide all necessary supervision, labour, plant, equipment and materials to carry out and complete the ducting, concrete troughs, concrete foundations, fencing and gates as detailed within the Subcontract and drawings pack to form a new battery energy storage facility (BESS) in Erskine. 

Shilton Lane BESS
Battery storage, or battery energy storage systems (BESS), are advanced devices that enable energy generated from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, to be stored efficiently. These systems allow for the stored energy to be released when it is most needed, thereby providing a reliable power supply to the network area where they are located. BESS play a critical role in balancing supply and demand, enhancing grid stability, and optimizing the utilization of renewable energy, ultimately contributing to a more resilient and sustainable energy infrastructure.


After reviewing the design information from the client, Nairn Construction Ltd. started on-site by installing the initial drainage systems and laying the cable ducting. These initial tasks set the stage for constructing the cable trough structure and erecting the fencing. Completing the drainage and ducting was crucial for ensuring the smooth progression of the overall project.


  • Diversion and upgrading of existing drainage including forming new headwall and installing perimeter cut off drainage.
  • Pouring Over 1200m3 of concrete into formed reinforced bases
  • Installation of Perimeter security fencing
  • 4000m of cable ducting between the troughs and the plinths


The works are now complete, marking a significant milestone in the project. With the initial construction phase successfully finished, the client is now progressing with the battery fit-out and cabling works. This next phase involves installing the battery systems and connecting the necessary cabling to ensure the efficient operation of the energy storage system. The timely and effective completion of the foundational works has provided a solid platform for these ongoing activities, which are essential for the project’s overall success and functionality.
