SECURING BRITAIN’S ELECTRICITY SUPPLY

SECURING BRITAIN’S ELECTRICITY SUPPLY

Zaun Limited

Electricity interconnectors play a crucial role in the EU’s strategy to achieve a competitive and integrated European energy market to increase energy security and apply downward pressure to wholesale electricity prices.The 500MW EirGrid East–West Interconnector links the British and Irish markets and brings Britain’s interconnector capacity to 4GW with the 2GW IFA to France, 1GW BritNed cable to Holland and 500MW Moyle interconnector to Northern Ireland.The SolutionThe East-West Interconnector project was financed by a €300 million loan from the European Investment Bank, capital investments from commercial banks, EirGrid equity and a €110 million grant from the European Commission.With such huge sums and massive power in play, security is vital on the 47 miles of subsoil and 116 of submarine cable that connects the Woodland HVDC static inverter plant at Rush North Beach, County Meath, and the Shotton plant on Barkby Beach in North Wales.Zaun secured the two inverter plants for Irish national grid operator EirGrid with around 600 metres of ArmaWeave fencing to 3 metres in height, buried in a concrete cill and combined with a 4.6 metre high Harper Chalice electric fence, which systems integrator Crime & Fire Defence Systems installed.The fence line had to be connected to an intricate underground earthing grid and to incorporate vehicular sliding gates, pedestrian turnstiles and manual gates.ArmaWeave achieves the highest rated standards for fencing defending against forcible attacks. Its unique properties and tight mesh pattern provide no climbing aids and resist cutting attacks with hand, powered and non-contact tools.

Load Balancing Solution (Array Charging) - Case Study

Load Balancing Solution (Array Charging) - Case Study

Pod Point LTD

A new mixed use development in East London, which features apartment blocks and individual residential plots along with an underground car park. This development lacked sufficient substation capacity for the electric vehicle charging infrastructure required to meet London planning conditions. This case study shows how we were able to prevent installing a further substation or having to upgrade existing power supply by load managing the load allocated to the electric vehicle charging points. Using an Array Charging/Load Management system is the only way you can allow for diversity for the load you allocate for electric vehicle charging points (BS7671).

Condair humidification at Jaguar Land Rover

Condair humidification at Jaguar Land Rover

Condair Limited

Condair has supplied and installed four evaporative humidification systems to Jaguar Land Rover for use in its exhaust emissions testing facility at the company’s Product Compliance Centre in Solihull. The evaporative humidifiers provide humidity control to two rolling-road engine test cells to ensure compliance with international environmental parameters.Jaguar Land Rover carries out quality control tests on every vehicle before it is despatched. The strict exhaust emission testing must be carried out within a temperature range of 20 to 30°C and a moisture level between 5.5 and 12.2g/kg of dry air.The evaporative humidifiers are replacing several electric steam humidifiers that were proving costly for Jaguar Land Rover to operate in terms of energy and parts. The humidification systems provided by Condair offers much lower running costs without the high maintenance inherent in steam systems.An evaporative humidifier consists of an evaporative module located inside an air handling unit with an external control panel. The evaporative module is a fully bonded particle-free matrix through which the air passes. Water is delivered to the top of the matrix and flows down its corrugated surface. As air passes through, it increases in humidity and is cooled.Rather than heating water with electricity to create steam, as the previous electric steam humidifiers did at Jaguar Land Rover, the air prior to the evaporative humidifier is heated by a gas-fired boiler. The warm dry air then absorbs moisture from the humidifier to reach the set humidity. The same amount of overall energy is required but the economy of using gas rather than electricity as a heat source makes the energy cost around 60% less than electric steam humidifiers.Evaporative humidifiers can operate on mains or demineralised water and can be located in short sections of an AHU as it provides instant evaporation. Unlike steam humidifiers that need regular maintenance to combat scale build-up, the scale that is left behind after evaporation from the matrix is simply washed to drain, reducing maintenance and operating costs.
