Liverpool powers up

[ March 3, 2015   //   ]

The port of Liverpool turned on one of the largest private electricity connections in the UK of recent years, on 27 February. Teams from Peel Ports and SP Energy Networks have been working together to create a new power network for the Liverpool2 container terminal development which is under construction.

The work to more than double the power capacity of the port from 20MVA (megavolt amperes to) to 50 MV included creating an 8km 132,000 volt grid connection at Aintree, 700 metres of tunnels and a new substation at Litherland.
