UCE was appointed to design the contestable works associated with the connection of two 5MW Solar Farms to a common Northern Powergrid 33kV connection. Two points of connection were provided by Northern Powergrid on their overhead line circuit passing the site requiring the installation of two 33kV underground cables which over the majority of the cable route shared a common trench.
As part of the design submission Northern Powergrid requested evidence that the configuration of the cable trench would maintain the circuit rating of 37MVA.
