The open terminal compound with aluminium tubular busbars, is designed to the DNO (Western Power Distribution) requirements, which includes all Steel structures for equipment, structure footing, system earthing, Transformer bund, Control/33kV building and the construction of the High security palisade fence. The design also of the HV protection network, SCADA system and commissioning there of.
Due to the inclination of the land on which the site is placed remedial ground works known as “Cut and Fill” on two levels were undertaken, with a Gabion wall built between the DNO and Customer compounds, which became an ideal line of ownership demarcation.
A non-environmentally sensitive stream had to be diverted to avoid the customer 132/33kV transformer compound.
The building design is standard layout but due to the levels across the ownership boundary the building in turn has two distinct floor levels.
The building is finished in Natural Cut & Tumbled stone with a slate roof in keeping with local building requirements.
Area lighting of the compounds and security CCTV is achieved by column mounted luminaires and cameras strategically placed through the compounds.
Excavation, reinstatement and installation of approximately 7,700 meters of private 33kV cabling and fibre network, to connect to four Wind Turbines.
