Walney Substation

OVERVIEW

With the ability to power over 590,000 UK homes from a total capacity of 660 mw, Walney Extension is set to be the biggest offshore wind farm in the world when it is commissioned at the end of 2018.


The project is 100% owned by Ørsted and required a new cable corridor to be installed to its Electrical Substation near Heysham.


The Brief

Protecting Critical National Infrastructure in the Utilities Industry presents a number of challenges that had to be overcome.

  • External Perimeter to offer guaranteed delay against attack
  • All fencing to be earthed or offer non conductive features
  • Internal Fencing to include multiple systems including Rigid Mesh and GRP in same fence line
  • External Perimeter and Physical Access Control to be compatible with power fencing (electric fencing) to meet security requirements
  • Internal Fencing to be base plated
