Powersystyems are delighted to have been awarded the high voltage electrical works contract for 16 MW Howpark Wind Farm, a subsidy free project. The wind farm will be located approx. 2.8km north-east of Grantshouse, Scottish Borders.
The project works at Howpark Wind Farm will see the High Voltage Electrical Engineers Powersystems; design, supply, install, commission and set to work all the electrical works between the point of connection to the Distribution Network Operator (DNO) network and the connections in the base of each wind turbine. As well as design, supply and install the communication system for the wind farm.
As well as being appointed to construct the electrical works on the windfarm site Powersystems have also been appointed to construct the 13km 33 kV contestable grid connection to DNO, Scottish Power Energy Networks plc (SPEN).
