UK Team Help Power Resources Tunnelling Project in North Yorkshire

Our UK team have delivered a containerised substation for a new, large resources project being undertaken in North Yorkshire. Ampcontrol are set to provide a range of equipment, cable and maintenance services throughout the construction phase of this new resources tunnelling project.

Designed to supply power to tunnel surface operations including a welding factory, the containerised substation designed and built by Ampcontrol will act as the main distribution system on-site. Stepping down the voltage from 11kV to 433V, the substation will power on-site manufacturing facilities and all low voltage plant equipment.

The containerised solution is housed within a 20ft steel container with separate personnel access with Alphalite MAX LED lighting, 230V IP rated power points, an expandable single phase distribution board and dry powder fire extinguishers. The unit includes a 1000kVA 11/433 ONAN DYN11 transformer, a medium voltage ring main unit was also included, along with a tee-off circuit breaker, MV cable test access, self-powered VIP300 transformer protection relay, phase protection and earth leakage protection.
