Humber Gateway

Humber Gateway 275kV GIS scheme was a new build project for Electricity Alliance North that consisted of the construction of a raised building to accommodate local flood risks. All buildings, substation compounds and auxiliary erections are built on piled foundations due to poor ground conditions and of a reinforced concrete substructure with steel frame and clad superstructure principle. As part of the construction team headed by Murphy Construction we were involved from the initial cost reviewing exercise, through to final handover. PK Engineering was contracted to supply and install the Mechanical & Electrical infrastructure along with an IT Installation. The project was completed in a shorter time period than originally allocated and still within the set budget.

The Project included: 

  • External lighting installation to all areas
  • General lighting and emergency lighting to office and 275kV switch hall
  • General small power to office and 275kV switch hall.
  • 400v & 110v systems to the 275kV switch hall
  • Ventilation to the 275kv Switch hall including the design & supply of a BMS control system for the ventilation units and separate dampers.
  • An L1 Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm to office and 275kV Transformer areas, with intrinsically safe units installed to  the battery room.
  • Welfare and canteen plumbing including sanitary ware.
  • Trace heating to all external pipework
  • Air Conditioning and ducted ventilation to various offices and relay rooms.
