NEW 1MVA SUB-STATION AND NEW LV SWITCH ROOM
Finch Farm is the main training facility for Everton Football club in Merseyside. It also incorporates other facilities such as an education centre, media centre and various football pitches/training pitches.
The existing sub-station was at capacity and to facilitate future expansion plans a new 1Mva sub-station and LV switch room were required. This project incorporates the work required in relation to diverting existing cables and protecting other live services along the footpath where the new substation is being constructed.
The Scope of the Contract is to undertake the concurrent disconnection of various existing SWA cables from the existing switch panel, jointing and reconnecting to the new switch panel in the new client owned LV switch room. The fundamental to the success of the scheme was to ensure that downtime to the facility was minimised at all times.
The works consisted of:
- 1000A LV Switch Panel
- Cable Jointing
- Fire Alarm
The works were completed in February 2020
