Flexibility is key

As networks seek to respond to changing operational demands and the ongoing drive for efficiency, flexibility is key.

Flexibility is key

The portable ‘plug & play’ relay and control rooms provided by design and engineering experts Acrastyle offer just this flexibility, enabling network operators to respond rapidly to changing needs.

The portable relay rooms are self-contained, fully integrated portable buildings containing several interconnected sub-systems, allowing customers to quickly integrate the protection system onsite. They can be positioned on site often near the project completion date and simply cabled up to a single marshalling kiosk.

One such project, deployed at Tamnamore substation in Northern Ireland, included four fully equipped portable relay rooms, 11 marshalling kiosks, a suite of ten 110kV protection panels and a 110kV, three bay mosaic mimic control panel. Acrastyle’s rigorously tested designs also provided a user-friendly graphical interface for operational staff.

Adopting this approach saw significant reductions in installation and commissioning timelines as well as reductions in cost as compared to installing a more traditional brick-built substation building.

The benefits don’t end there: the flexibility of the solution allows for alterations in configuration at a later stage in the lifecycle of the substation should this become necessary, reducing the need for further costly and disruptive upgrades.
