This project involved the full balance of plant delivery and coordination of the generator install by others. Another project that had complexity with the coordination of third parties for the mains gas/regulator, electricity substation, metering and telecoms for the aggregators signalling and G99 testing & Commissioning. A huge thanks to the great team of people who made this project work safely and efficiently.

National Grid Electricity Transmission plc (National Grid), as the National Electricity Transmission System Operator (NETSO) requires access to extra power in the form of either generation or demand reduction during certain periods of the day in order to manage situations where actual demand is greater than forecast demand and/or unforeseen generation unavailability. National Grid procures Short Term Operating Reserve (STOR) to help meet this reserve requirement. STOR is a contracted balancing service whereby the Service Provider delivers a contracted level of power (within pre-agreed parameters) when instructed by National Grid. The requirement for STOR varies depending on the time of year, week, and day, being a function of the system demand profile at that time.
