High Voltage Power System Upgrade- 11kV Private Network
C&P Engineering Services is in the process of completing major construction on the High Voltage power system upgrade project at Kirkcudbright Training Centre, Scotland. Kirkcudbright Training Centre is an MOD base on the northern coastline of the Solway Firth in Dumfries and Galloway and occupies an exposed headland 5 km south of the town of Kirkcudbright. It is the principal live firing training facility for crew served weapon platforms (vehicle and rotary wing) in Scotland and the north of England.
The project is for Landmarc Support Services who work in partnership with DIO (Defence Infrastructure Organisation) to manage the national Defence training estate. It will include replacing the existing HV power system and designing and constructing a new system which includes excavating and installing 20km of cable across watercourses, roads, forests and agricultural terrain.
