Kincardine 275kV Substation

Kincardine substation was identified as being at risk from flooding in the event of varying severity of storm events.

The main control room threshold is predicted to be breached from the 1:50 year event. At a 1:1000-year event all the surveyed substation critical equipment is predicted to be under water. It was proposed to use flood mitigation funding in RIIO-T1 to construct a new 275kV GIS substation to replace the existing 275kV AIS substation. GTDS were contracted by Siemens PLC to install a new 275kV 9 Bay Indoor GIS Substation. The Works included Project Management, SHEQ Management, Installation and Commissioning of New Primary Equipment, Protection and Control Panels etc.
