builds on design work completed in NIA SHET 0013, and aims to evaluate the
deployment of a permanent substation designed using a Modular Approach to
Substation Construction (MASC).
current approach to substation construction differs little from that of 60
years ago; meanwhile many innovations in design and civil engineering could
create a substation which is cheaper, faster to deploy and more suited to GB’s
low carbon energy future.
seeks to prove the following benefits:
The project is expected to last for approximately five
years, providing incremental learning and new standards in substation design
