CASE STUDIES

Our project portfolio varies throughout the various industry sectors and with our experience throughout these sectors we’re here to provide you with the most cost effective Engineering Power Solution.

We have been involved with a wide range of projects ranging from renewable energy technology to traditional fossil fuel extraction, chemical process and manufacturing projects. Many of these projects involved detailed design of either new large electrical equipment and others have been something as simple as area lighting for a new substation. Whatever the size of the engineering project you can almost guarantee that there’ll be some form of electrical engineering involvement.

At present we’re helping to connect the next generation of efficient wind turbine technology to the existing electrical power distribution network. We’re also providing solutions and answers to electrical engineering issues to extract oil & gas from the most onerous environmental conditions. So, whether its power system modelling for a larger water injection pump, plant electrical protection settings or a new hydro power plant electrical system design Engineering Power Solutions can help you.

Offshore Wind

Offshore Wind

A wind farm in Scotland was granted planning permission including a connection in principal was offered, however SSE were concerned of the number of wind turbine transformers that could potentially be energised simultaneously. Energisation of unloaded transformers results in a magnetising inrush...
Enercon

Enercon

A number of wind turbines were granted planning permission, these wind turbines to be connected to the local 11kV distribution network. The nearest electrical 11kV connection point however was located 2.8 km and the land in between both the wind turbine and 11kV connection point was not owned by the...
Biomass Gas Plant

Biomass Gas Plant

EPS was awarded a contract to provide power quality analyser services for several biomass plants located around the UK. All too often we are finding poor quality electrical design and installations where catastrophic failures have occurred due to inadequate engineering. The power study determined...
Oil& Gas Diving Vessel

Oil& Gas Diving Vessel

EPS recently completed an Arc Flash Energy study for another offshore dive support vessel comprising of offshore surveys, ETAP power system model development and an arc flash energy mitigation report. The report detailed what measures should be put in place to make the electrical distribution system...
Oil&Gas Dive Support Vessel

Oil&Gas Dive Support Vessel

EPS has recently completed an electrical protection co-ordination study using ETAP power system modelling software for one of our clients supporting the North Sea Oil&Gas industry. The study reported several areas of concern and addressed where the protection could be improved to prevent future...
Electrical, Control & Instrumentation Design

Electrical, Control & Instrumentation Design

A Teesside based chemical bulk storage company requested EPS to provide Engineering & Design EC&I services for a new compressed gas storage facility. This consisted of a new Motor Control Centre (MCC), hazardous area lighting, compressor motors, pumps, PLC panel and instrumentation to...
Oil&Gas FPSO Subsea Tie Back Project

Oil&Gas FPSO Subsea Tie Back Project

EPS was requested to provide a power system study for HV power and increased LV load to accommodate increased oil production rates for a vessel located offshore. The existing Gas Turbine Generators (GTG’s) are to be upgraded to accommodate this. This is to allow 3 out of 4 GTGs to operate during...
Electrical Protection Optimisation Study

Electrical Protection Optimisation Study

EPS has recently completed an electrical protection co-ordination study using power system modelling software for one of our bulk chemical transportation clients. The study reported several areas of concern and addressed where the protection could be improved to prevent future outages out at sea....
33 kV Subsea Power Re-configuration Project

33 kV Subsea Power Re-configuration Project

Two of the three platforms generated power for to supply all three platforms. Marathon Oil proposed to decommission one of the platforms which operated with three Gas Turbine Generators and the remaining generating platform supporting the non generating platform. The power management system that...
Marine Switchboard Replacement Project

Marine Switchboard Replacement Project

EPS has been awarded a contract to replace four 440V switchboards for an Oil&Gas vessel (FPSO) located in the UK Continental Shelf (UKSCS). Offering the complete Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) solution EPS has been requested to undertake the Front End Engineering Design (FEED),...
