Energy suppliers E.ON have been presented with an award from the Civil Engineering and Environmental Quality Assessment (CEEQUAL) Award Scheme for sustainability.
E.ON's proposed seven-turbine wind farm at Winwick in Northamptonshire has become the first renewable cheap energy project to win an award through the CEEQUAL scheme.
As part of the Client & Design Award, the wind project was rated "very good" under the CEEQUAL scheme, which is supported by the Institution of Civil Engineers, which promotes environmental and sustainability excellence in civil engineering.
Daniel Badcock, project developer at E.ON, said: "We're really proud of how we develop our wind farms in a responsible and sustainable manner and achieving this CEEQUAL award reinforces our commitment to developing renewable energy in the most sustainable way possible."
Eric Hughes, chairman of CEEQUAL, added that the award shows how CEEQUAL can be applied to the design and construction of any civil engineering project.
