Power network development at Exeter

Infrastructure & Civil Engineering
Development Management

Significant growth to the east of Exeter is taking place with a new rail freight terminal, the Skypark business park and a new town north of the airport. 

This growth will lead to significant new demands across the existing power networks.  To secure future supplies to the growth area and existing customers, Brookbanks worked closely with the incumbent Distribution Network Operator, WPD, and a number of third party operators to assess the existing provision and then plan and implement a series of network improvements.

With development underway and much of the infrastructure requiring long lead periods, Brookbanks needed carefully to develop a strategy allowing development to proceed while ensuring important network milestones were achieved.

Services included:

  • Power demand assessments
  • Network assessment & planning
  • Management of network upgrading & coordination
