POWER AND RESILIENCE

POWER – THE AVAILABLE
CAPACITY AT DARLINGTON
NORTH IS CURRENTLY IN
THE ORDER OF 30MVA

Power – The available capacity at Darlington North is currently in the order of 30MVA, a formal quotation has been provided previously by CE Electric the DNO to cover this requirement. Further capacity can be provided but will either need to have additional reinforcement

of the local network or additional 132kV circuits or a combination of the two. As noted, alternative power supplies can be made available from Skernside which is serviced at 66kV.

Darlington North has dual transformers and incoming 132kV circuits so as to meet the normal levels of resilience for UK power distribution including allowing for planned maintenance.
