Connection & Substation

The Brief

Freedom were approached in August 2015 by Goldbeck to establish the feasibility of undertaking the project for delivery and G59 testing by March 2016. Freedom received an order for the Design in late September 2015, with site established mid-October and site works starting in earnest early November 2015.

The Approach

Over the following 4 months the project team have designed, procured, built and commissioned all items associated with the substation including gaining approval from SSE for a raised cladded building solution and subsequent erection of 2 control buildings, grid transformer bund, 5 disconnectors and 2 x 132kV dead tank circuit breakers and associated civil structures.

The Delivery

This project has utilised the skill set of the whole of the Freedom group drawing on the expertise and delivery experience of the in-house Design, Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering businesses.
