The future and our joint commitment to preserving the planet has placed renewable energy and the management of electrical networks high on the agenda of not only generators and distributors, but also the everyday consumer.
Understanding the changes within the electrical sphere and the unyielding demand for power, advances in technology, the adjustment in society’s lifestyle psyche and the weight of movement behind the green agenda – the move to a more earth preservation centric school of thought is no longer the preserve of the academia.
The introduction of low carbon networks; STOR, demand site response facilities, the continued growth of electric vehicles are just some of the technologies changing the power landscape. When you add this to the new financial models, trading platforms and commercial contracting opportunities, it is easy to see why detailed thinking is required. Our renewable and future networks’ consultancy considers so much more, exploring variables and challenging input assumptions rigorously to ensure the most savvy of solutions are developed to help you inform your decision-making process and give you the cutting edge.
Whether you are integrating assets into your existing infrastructure, creating new networks, improving existing performance or developing long term strategic plans, Ingenious can help you.
Ingenious is a registered, accredited designer for electrical substations sized 11kV – 132kV. From improvements, refurbishments and upgrades to new installations (AIS or GIS), Primary or Secondary, our team provides a total solution, covering all aspects of design. Whether managing and delivering through the entire process on behalf of our clients or working within a composite design team, we provide the quality of output which continually meet the project objectives, typically with a few Ingenious ideas for added value along the way.
We have found that early engagement, even at concept phase, our engineering team are able to provide important input which helps to shape the right solution from the start, preventing costly errors and delays to programme.
Our 3D modelling gives our clients a unique perspective, opening more useful dialogue with all stakeholders, providing context which enables early identification of clash items, or other considerations which may not always be easily identifiable in 2D formats. Whether you choose to immerse yourself in the 3D environment and walk through your project or you just want to watch an accurate 3D animation, we can assure you, you will immediately appreciate the benefits our 3D modelling provides. Far from a gimmick, this powerful tool aids the translation from design to construction, reducing ambiguity or misunderstandings. See examples here.
Ingenious provide a design experience which will exceed your usual expectations. Solutions which take into consideration buildability, minimising variations during construction for better cost planning and a better job, full stop.
For full details of our design capabilities, please do get in touch. We would welcome the opportunity to tell you more.
Full preparation and definition of protection schemes and relay selection, through coordination studies and relay settings, substation control and engineering design, our engineers are fluent in their understanding of distribution networks, 11kV to 33kV as well as transmission networks, 132kV to 500kV and completely understand the safety responsibilities that are intrinsic with careful protection engineering.
Our team is flexible and have on occasion worked within a client’s team to help provide a best practice reference check, fresh impetus or even just a reassuring corroborating resource to ensure that their assets are operating safely and within expected technical standards as a minimum.
Our protection services include:
We see project management differently, more than just the prerequisite Gant charts, and budget management, we believe our creative, proactive approach to project management will identify opportunities to improve programme efficiencies and resolve issues which may arise during the delivery of the project.
Through detailed planning at the earliest possible stages and close monitoring with a culture of peer to peer challenging, continually delivery enhancement is a core objective in every project we manage on behalf of our clients.
This service includes:
Our engineers have played a key role in some of the most challenging projects both domestically and internationally. Leading the team or supporting the client’s in-house engineers, in all cases we have played an integral role and have produced tangible benefits for our clients.
In this role, our sole objective is to provide the technical expertise and support required so our client’s position is protected at all times. We reduce, even remove the requirement for internal HV engineering team, providing you with qualified, lateral thinking, technical capability.
