At a Glance

Dragon Infrastructure Solutions successfully completed a large CHP project for APS Salads, totalling 15MW export, tucked away in Ash on the outskirts of Canterbury. The challenge was to connect 2NO – 7.5MW 11kV combined heat and power plants to the UKPN DNO grid via a new 33kV metering substation.

The farm covered 52 acres of land and was designed to provide enough electricity to power more than 4,300 homes making it an important development for the local area. Dragon IS, one of the UK’s leading independent connections providers, designed and installed the entire connection framework from the 33kV metering substation along with 2.9 km of 33kV cable to the 33/11kV 15 MVA transformer. The cables and metering substation were then adopted by UKPN.
