High voltage electrical installations

Providing a complete solution

Our plant installation engineers can undertake all aspects of substation layout, design and high voltage electrical installations, from early planning and investigation to project management of plant installation within live substation environments.

Our substation electrical layout service will assess all options, with regard to high voltage electrical installations, within the constraints of the existing substation layout and network limitations to ensure the most cost effective and practical installation solution.

We will undertake detailed analysis to identify risks identified and will design the substation layout to mitigate risk within the project planning stage. We will provide a pre-tender plant layout solution which thereby minimises change and associated impact on time, cost and quality.

Our early substation layout planning solutions include the following services designed to minimise project risk through:-

  • Carrying out site investigation works to identify utility congested areas, to confirm existing ground conditions and to assess condition and layout of existing structures, to determine optimum layout solutions.
  • Co-ordinating wayleave and easement negotiations to minimise any associated risks to cost and programme
  • Liaison with third parties such as the Local Authority, Environment Agency, Network Rail and others to ensure their full cooperation prior to the tender stage.
  • Production of detailed technical reports to enable preparation of preliminary estimates for project approval.

Our engineering team have numerous years of experience working within all areas of the utility industry. Previous substation installation projects range from distribution substations up to 132kV GIS substations, across in-situ and off-line installation of switchgear and transformers

Our construction solutions include the following services designed to assist with smooth running of site works through:-

  • Preparation of tender drawings and documentation
  • Technical assessment of tender returns
  • Programming of proposed works to incorporate local network constraints and site specific limitations
  • Monitoring construction progress
  • Inspection of completed works
  • As-built surveys of completed works

EDES clients within the utility sector include Electricity North West (ENW), Iberdrola (Scottish Power) and MSVE
