The infrastructural necessity for increased energy capacity and water management works brings with it a need for archaeological investigation. Such projects often deal with upland and marine environments, areas where Rubicon (formerly known as Headland Archaeology Ireland) have considerable expertise.
In the windfarm sector, we have worked on Ireland’s first offshore windfarm project and the UK’s largest onshore complex; our traditional energy portfolio includes the first electricity interconnector built between Britain and Ireland. In terms of water, Rubicon bring the full range of experience on a wide range of projects, including flood alleviation schemes, waste-water treatment facilities, main-drainage works and water supply. We offer a one-stop shop for all your archaeological requirements with regard to energy and water projects.
