Lovedean 132kV Substation – Powerteam Electrical Services

Kelvin Energy were employed by Powerteam Electrical services to provide Primary and civil design services for 2 new bays and to supply steel equipment support structures to complement those already installed in adjacent bays on site.

Due to network operational issues, two new circuit breaker bays were required at Lovedean 132kV Substation. Some difficult ground conditions meant that the foundation solution needed careful consideration and this manifested into some bespoke arrangements for some of the major items of HV plant. With the first new bay complete, and the second under construction, this project is proof that there is a requirement for the designer to be flexible in their approach and that it is not always possible to just re-use existing designs, as ground conditions can vary locally across the same site.
