Power Solutions

Our Power Solutions team specialises in electrical design, connections and private electrical projects, providing solutions for connections, power generation, battery storage, standby power, and private network operators.

Major Connections

We are accredited to carry out design and delivery work up to and including 132kV, right through to the point of connection. 

Liaising with your local Distribution Network Operator (DNO), we arrange and coordinate the connection to the existing network. 

We can also deliver further savings for independent DNO connections.

Grid Connections

Contestable connection works can be carried out by either the DNO or by a National Electrical Registration Scheme (NERS)/Lloyds Register accredited contractor; known as an Independent Connection Provider (ICP). 

As an ICP, with full NERS accreditation up to 132kV, we can carry out the following services under the contestable works:

  • Design works for your new connection
  • Procure materials and plant for the connection works
  • Land rights negotiations with third party landowners (if required)
  • On site trench excavation and duct installation
  • Public highway trench excavation and duct installation
  • On site construction of substation buildings and other civil works
  • Cable installation
  • Substation plant installation and cold commissioning
  • On site excavation for jointing bay
  • Public highway excavation for jointing bay
  • Testing of assets installed by ICP
  • Recording of installed assets

Electrical Infrastructure

From initial design to final commissioning and testing, we offer a complete electrical distribution package. 

Our engineers have extensive experience in the design and construction of electrical infrastructure distribution systems up to 132kV and we can offer a solution to any electrical infrastructure project.

We cover:

Cable installations - 1kV and 5kV insulation tests, DC pressure tests up to 33kV and VLF cable testing

Transformers - HV & LV winding insulation tests, Winding ratio checks and Bucholz testing

Switchgear - AC pressure testing, Ductor testing, CT’s – Ratio and flick tests, mag curves, VT’s – Ratio and polarity checks and Functionality checks
