Sandridge Solar Park has more than 190,000 solar panels covering 200 hectares with a 132 kV substation. It was built in 2016 but requires maintenance to operate at full performance. Sinewave supported Anesco by providing electrical maintenance.
Sinewave conducted fully intrusive maintenance for 28 substations. It carried out secondary injection testing of 55 production relays and G59 testing. In addition, it performed sheath testing and label checks across the site, plus oil sampling of all transformers and civils works. The Sinewave team were on site for more than a week. All work was performed to Anesco’s satisfaction.
The Sandridge Solar Park will continue to operate at optimal efficiency, and the UK takes another step towards its goal of net zero emissions. This site alone provides enough energy for 11,000 households a year.
