Grid connection support

Achieving grid connection and grid code compliance is absolutely key in delivering most projects and we have experience in developing and optimizing design of electrical systems to meet technical and quality requirements, enhancing our client’s project revenue and reducing risks. Some of our services include:

  • Feasibility studies.
  • Grid connection application process management.
  • Assessment of grid connection conditions including location, capacity and any potential reinforcements that may be required.
  • Review of grid connection agreements and designs including any associated transmission/distribution system reinforcements proposed by connection utilities.
  • Assessment of benefits and risks of contestable and non-contestable connections.
  • Management of utility activities associated with grid connections e.g. wayleaves, planning applications, reinforcement works.


Electrical design and system specification

Large projects require a consistent technical documentation structure, organized from the environmental and system specifications down to the detailed design reports and drawings. Some of the services that we offer include:

  • Concept system design and layout.
  • Basic engineering of electrical systems for solar projects.
  • Electrical system specification and main electrical component specification.
  • Preparation and review of detailed electrical system design and drawings.


Electrical equipment

We undertake assessments of the quality and performance of all types of electrical equipment against project bespoke requirements including:

  • Combiner Boxes.
  • Inverters.
  • Transformers.
  • Switchgear.
  • Cables.
  • Substation equipment.
  • Transmission lines.


Power quality monitoring

The measurement and analysis of current and voltage performance over periods of time is important as this can provide evidence of compliance to grid connection conditions or assessment of potential issues such as harmonic distortion, voltage instability etc.Additional electrical capabilities include:

  • SCADA and communication design and specification.
  • Electrical loss assessment and analysis.
  • System studies for solar energy penetration into the electrical networks.
  • System studies for off grid electrical systems.
