Customer: Evans Energy Ltd
Project: Culham Hydro
Date: September 2016
Location: Culham Village, Abingdon, Oxfordshire
Pascon were required to design, build and commission the connection of a 500 kVa Archimedian hydro generation site. This comprised of provision and installation of a 120metre cable route and construction of an 11kv substation and then connecting on to the existing network.
Working closely with the client, there was also an essential requirement to provide a consultative role throughout the duration of the project
Pascon had to liaise with all of the stakeholders to ensure that all of the processes needed were completed on time. The short timescales from project award to completion was less than 3 months, which for a generation project is remarkable. Our DNO expertise and assistance with legals were crucial to ensure that the connection date happened before the client tariff expired.
The Pascon team designed and installed a bespoke 11kV metered substation, carried out all of the excavations, reinstatement and laid the HV cable on time and to budget.
