Fabricated in Turkey by contractor AREVA T&D, the 60MVAr reactors are both 8 metres long and 4 metres high, so required special transportation by Abnormal Load Engineering Ltd. from the docks at Avonmouth in Bristol.

 

The 63 tonne reactors have now been installed at the substation, which is on track for completion and commissioning by the end of this year.
