Dagenham Data Centre

Our Freedom team was appointed to design and build an 80 MVA 132kV connection to a new data centre in the UK Power Networks region. To facilitate the connection to an existing 132kV OHL terminal tower, Freedom installed its new point of connection mast - POC-MAST™ which provided a quicker and cheaper final connection point.

St Osyth Solar Farm

The POC-MAST™ provided a safe, cost-effective solution ensuring working at height was minimised. Although this was the first time this solution was used in the UK, the design and installation were safely delivered to time and programme. It also reduced the 33kV cable connection length by 350m.

Former RAF Lyneham Base Solar Farm

This project saw a POC-MAST™ installed for a 70MW solar farm. The 213-acre solar farm at the former RAF Lyneham base in Wiltshire has been developed by SSEN with the Ministry of Defence. The location, next to a wooded area, presented several challenges, meaning that it was initially presumed that the permanent connection would require the installation of a new pylon, the diversion of an overhead line and the removal of part of the woodland.
