Drayton Manor Solar Farm

Western Power Distribution October 2015 to August 2016

Objectives and purpose

The benefits of a turnkey package in any sector are widely acknowledged – communication is clear, consistency is achieved as standard and project coordination is far more efficient to manage. But when it comes to high voltage electrical engineering projects, end-to-end service providers can fulfil more than just efficiency requirements.

Therefore, when Anesco required a contractor to complete a 66/11kV 65MW fully adopted outdoor substation for Drayton Manor – a solar farm which now generates enough energy to power more than 14,000 homes – turnkey specialist Smith Brothers was a clear choice. With decades of experience working on high voltage electrical assignments, the firm was enlisted to carry out the entire design-to-commission project.
