g2 Energy are able to design, build and install bespoke Container Solutions for both the Distribution Network Operator (DNO) Contestable Works and the Client’s electrical infrastructure. As a Lloyds accredited Independent Connection Provider (ICP), g2 Energy can design a solution for both High Voltage switchgear and substation monitoring/control rooms. We ensure that they meet the DNOs stringent specifications, ensuring design approval is achieved, minimising project risk.

The Benefits of a Containerised Solution

A typical Containerised Substation will consist of a Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Housing or a steel container which would typically include:

  • High Voltage Switchgear
  • Battery Chargers
  • Protection / Control Panels
  • Auxilliary Supply or Distribution Tx
  • LV Lighting / Sockets / Heating

One of the main advantages of building a containerised solution is that the substation arrives on site with pre-installed, fully tested switchgear and equipment which is ready for immediate swift, de-skilled installation. These containers can be fully connected to the grid within 1 week of site delivery.

Our Containerised Solutions also benefit projects with limited on-site space. They are manufactured in our own warehouse facility, meaning they decease the amount of disruption and risks on site. The units can be compacted, whilst still keeping to client requirements, ensuring they take up minimal space on site.

Why choose a Containerised Substation from g2 Energy?

All design work is undertaken in-house by our highly experienced Civil, Electrical and Structural Chartered Engineers; therefore we can tailor a solution to meet project-specific requirements.

Containers are assembled in g2 Energy’s own warehouse facility, allowing us to minimise delivery timescales and provide bespoke solutions in a fast and efficient manner. Our 14,500 sq. foot warehouse facility in Milton Keynes can accommodate numerous Container Substations at a time, with a standard solution being built in less than 2 weeks.

As an independent contractor, we are able to utilise any switchgear from all reputable manufacturers. On completion of the Container build, we will offer to provide a complete installation service, including construction of suitable foundations, cable works, jointing and full commissioning services. Alternatively, we can offer a ‘supply only’ service if required.
