Project Case Studies

Calne
Is a 3 generator 6MW plant located in Calne, Wiltshire. The plant generates sufficient electricity for 3600 average homes. The site is co-located in the yard of an active haulage business. This required close co-operation to ensure construction proceeded on schedule but the day-to-day operations of trucks entering and leaving the site was maintained. Acoustic fencing is installed to the west and south aspects to ensure acoustic levels are compliant with consent conditions. The project connects at 11kV to a nearby SSE substation.

Matching

Is a 3 generator 6MW plant near Matching Green in rural Essex. The plant generates sufficient electricity for 3600 average homes. The site is located in a section of a rural commercial farm yard within the green belt. Impacts to the green belt were assessed and mitigated through the planning process including ensuring the design did not impact the root zone of boundary trees. The site required easements with neighbouring landowners for buried gas and grid connections to the connection points of the Cadent and UKPN networks.

Chatterley

Chatterley is an 8 generator 20MW plant located at the former Chatterley Whitfield Colliery to the north of Stoke. The site is located on land owned by Stoke City Council and represents an important step in the revitalisation of the area. The plant generates sufficient electricity for 12,000 average homes. This is an example of a project that Conrad acquired, redesigned, constructed and now owns and operates.

The generators are built by MTU, a Rolls Royce subsidiary company, and were containerised in the UK.

The time lapse footage provides a great overview of the construction process involved with the site. This project is one of Conrad’s largest, connecting at 33kV to the WPD network.
