Power On’s work on Berryfields represented the biggest single project for the London team since the depot opened and was the first primary substation installation in the region.
Working as principal contractor, Power On undertook the £7m project, which comprised an 8.2MVA load and 6.8km off-site extra high voltage cable route.
To complete works, Power On negotiated the long term lease of the land; purchased land for the substation site and navigated three bridge crossings. They also undertook extensive consultation meetings with local residents and Buckinghamshire County Council’s traffic management division to ensure minimum disruption.
In addition, as part of its ‘responsible neighbour’ policy, Power On designed the substation to preserve a Category B oak tree on the site and made a substantial donation to fund a new disabled restroom for a local village hall.
