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.

All design work is undertaken in-house by our highly experienced Civil, Electrical and Structural Chartered Engineers, and 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.

A typical Containerised Substation will consist of a Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Housing or a steel ISO (shipping) 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 and 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.
