Case Study - Raby Castle

55 MW Solar Farm


Northallerton, North East

One of the largest Solar Farms in the North East of England.


ERS deployed 3 drilling rigs and 2no ramming machines to one off the largest Solar farms in the North East some 55MW. Our scope of works was to predrill a minimum of 4900 holes on the side of the site where the rock was outcropping and ramming wasn’t viable.  ERS method was to utilise the down the hole hammer drilling at various diameters to match the C section piles to be installed/rammed.

Our 2no ramming machines were deployed to assist in the Installion of some 30,000.00 ramming across the 200 acre site including the 4900 pre drilled holes.

Our full scope of works didn’t stop there as we also assisted with the distribution of the piles, frames and panels with our newly acquired Case TV 450B skidsteer.


Full project management and health & safety management of the site ensuring maximum efficiency and safety throughout the works.
