Set to cut transport emissions is the stone recycling project:  Recently Siemens Energy has launched a stone reuse project to reduce emissions and construction traffic in Lincolnshire.

This initiative will move more than 8,768 tonnes of stone, and was used to build a temporary access road and site accommodation for the Triton Knoll onshore substation works, connecting to the neighbouring National Grid Viking Link interconnector project.

It is thought that the number of stones could fill almost three Olympic-sized swimming pools and will be used to develop an access road on Viking Link for the high voltage cabling works.

It is forecast that the project can save 58 tonnes of carbon dioxide and avoid more than 670 lorry trips.

“Not only will reusing this material save carbon dioxide from the quarrying process by reducing the amount of new aggregate we would need to source but through reducing the impact of construction traffic by more than 14,000 miles and around 675 lorry trips, air quality in the area will also be improved.” said Mark Pilling, Head of Large Transmission Solutions, Siemens Energy.

“It not only reduces our carbon output but also minimises disruption for local residents.” said Mike Elmer, Project Director of Viking Link.
