This was a live power station/132kV compound where initially, cables had to be diverted to allow access to build the new switchgear building and compound extension. Careful consideration was applied to ‘Ivy Bridge’ (a 700 year old listed structure) which was adjacent to the site and within a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Construction was phased to allow the customer’s electrical contractors on site to install plant and undertake cable connections.
