Specialist electrical design engineers
Our electrical engineers can undertake all aspects of high voltage electrical design and installation.
Substation electrical design
Our substation high voltage electrical design service will assess all options within the constraints of the existing substation layout and network limitations. This is to ensure the design facilitates the most cost effective and practical installation solution. We begin by undertaking detailed analysis to identify any risks – the substation layout will be designed 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.
Design of high voltage overhead power lines
We have many years’ experience working with high voltage overhead power lines involving both steel tower and wood pole systems. With their knowledge and background within the industry as senior authorised persons, our high voltage electrical design engineers have the advantage of understanding the operational aspect of HV & EHV systems.
Our overhead line planning and design services include:
- Route options & feasibility studies.
- Overhead line design.
- Foundation & structural design.
- Topographic surveys.
- 3D CAD modelling.
- Wire clearance & string drawings.
- Specialist profile software such as Optimal & PLS Cad.
- Overhead power lines & substation surveys.
Cable laying design
Our cable engineers can undertake all aspects of HV overhead line installation & route design. Early planning and investigation involves carrying out site investigation works to identify utility congested areas, confirming existing ground conditions and assessing condition and layout of existing structures, to determine optimum layout solutions.
Our high voltage electrical design solutions include the following services designed to assist with smooth running of site works;
- 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
Our clients within the utility sector include Electricity North West (ENW), Iberdrola ( Scottish Power) and MSVE
