The High-voltage division of Welsh electrical specialist engineering firm, has been awarded the design and construction contract by Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council for the high voltage electrical infrastructure required to support the development of a multi-million-pound Eco Park development at its Bryn Pica Waste Management Facility – the facility will be the first of its kind in the UK.

The facility in Llwydcoed. Rhondda Cynon Taf provides recycling services for the County Borough’s residents and businesses, and the Council has ambitious plans to build a self-sustainable Eco Park there. Based on the notion of circular economy, the Eco Park will help turn more rubbish into a resource by collecting and re-using waste materials produced on site. These materials will be reprocessed by companies invited to locate on the Eco Park site. The facilities will benefit from Renewable energy – both heat and electrical – generated on the site.

High Voltage services division will provide enabling works which includes design, supply, install, test and commissioning for a 2MVA package substation, Ring Main Unit (RMU), HV cable system for a 2MVA package substation, Low Voltage (LV) cable system for Mattress recycling, visitor centre fence distribution board, feeder pillar to replace perimeter fence distribution board and Low Voltage (LV) cable transfers.

Over the past 18-months HV has been rapidly expanding its high voltage project services and maintenance activities, securing a number of critical projects and contracts across the UK.

David Demock, HV’s high voltage engineering director commented: “We are extremely pleased to partner with Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council to deliver such an important phase for this prestigious project. We have been adding to our power engineering capabilities over the past few years which has assisted us to grow and offer clients such as Rhondda Cynon Taf Council even more value through our unique approach.

Using our own people, plant and highly experienced engineering solutions we are pleased that we can play a vital role in the development of the park. This will ultimately help to recycle more, protect the environment and create commercial opportunities and job creation in the Cynon Valley”.
