The open compound 132/33 kV substation with tubular busbars, designed and constructed to the local DNO (UK Power Networks) standards, is located 200 m from the local grid substation.
The DNO 132 kV switchgear is contained within an ABB “PASS-MO” compound, with GRP control room and fibre optic communication between the sites.
The design included transformer bund, switch/control rooms, all plant structures, footings, HV protection, SCADA systems and the complete commissioning of the scheme.
The solar farm connection consists of an individual 33 kV circuit approximately 7 km North West of the site, which included a 485 m directional drill beneath an SSI and river.
As a final stage of the project an extensive horticultural screen of local flora was designed and implemented to fulfil local authorities planning requirements.
