Powersystems UK have now handed over Blackcraig Windfarm. Powersystems UK supported the customer by installing, commissioning and back energising the site with a Generator System to enable the Turbine supplier, Siemens Gamesa, to commission a turbine against a ‘false grid’.  The HV Generator system comprised of a step-up transformer to energise the system at 33kV, a main and backup generator to ensure continuity of supply and to provide stability during energisation of the turbine transformers, 2MW of load banks to provide load for the turbine to generate against and LV switched inductor banks to compensate for the reactive power due to cable capacitance on the site.  All controlled with an integral  Modbus controller to automatically switch the load bank load.  Commissioning was successful and completed in the short timeframe required. The site was then transferred to the new grid supply and was immediately online and available to generate through the meter, a pre-requisite for the customer Blue Energy in compliance with the Ofgem accreditation criteria.

Powersystems has successfully completed and handed over another electrical infrastructure project.  Fulfilling its contract to provide the design, supply, installation and commissioning services of a 54.4MW windfarm.   A 26km 33kV grid connection route made up of 6 x 33kV power cables, fibre optic cables, over 300 terminations and 4 x overhead line section points, all undertaken by Powersystems as the Independent Connection Provider in Northern Powergrid’s region.

We have again shown our ability to work in partnership with the main civil contractor, turbine installer and the windfarm client to deliver this project to plan, and provide an extra level of service and support to accommodate any additional requirements throughout the project.

Ray Windfarm gained UK Government approval in 2005 and work started in 2015.  Now that it is fully operational it is able to provide electricity for 30,000 homes directly into the national grid transmission network, for the benefit of customers across the UK!
