Peat Depth Surveys, Dumfries & Galloway

In Winter 2020, EP Ecology completed a series of peat depth surveys for a larger multi-disciplinary consultancy at an existing wind farm site in Dumfries & Galloway. The data were required to help the end client design cable routes to avoid traversing deep peat.

A total of 86 points were sampled across two days in very rough weather conditions (there’s a reason they built a wind farm there!) Data were then passed to the larger consultancy for reporting and use in design works.
