Substation works begin

The Noss on Dart substation will be complete by September

Industry Database

Work has begun on the construction of a new electricity substation at Noss on Dart Marina, part of a £75m redevelopment by Premier Marinas.

The works are being carried out by UK Power Solutions, that is constructing the foundations required to house the new switch room, auxiliary transformer and a 14m telecommunications pole, in accordance with the approved planning consent for this phase of the development.

Before the new transformer is ready for use, a new electricity supply will be taken from the overhead HV cables to the top of the Noss on Dart site and fed under the main road. The supply will then run into the new services ducting, which leads to the new sub-station – both of which will be created as part of this project.

Due to the complex nature of the project and with the delayed start due to COVID-19, Premier Marinas anticipate that works will be complete by September.
