Braybrooke Electricity Substation
When National Grid needed to build a large new electricity substation to support Network Rail’s electrification of the Midland Main Line, Enable Welfare supplied all the welfare units, offices and accessories such as water tanks for this off-grid site. We also provided full site cabin set-up and support services, including sewage removal, for the whole 12-month construction period.
The substation near Market Harborough in Leicestershire is designed to take electricity from National Grid at 400kV and reduce the voltage to 25kV for Network Rail, so that faster and cleaner trains can be run, thus making public transport even more environmentally friendly.
Fittingly, Enable Welfare provided the site with a Solar Pod hybrid solar power generator during the works so that contractors could reduce their carbon footprint, while at the same time saving money on fuel costs.
