Both Solar and Wind farms will require both Lightning Protection and Earthing Systems.

With sites often in remote locations, where repairs and maintenance can be expensive, investment in protection systems is critical

We use a selection of methods to provide a low resistance earth, including earth rods, mats or plates, soil conditioning agents, deep drilled bore-holes – the selection will depend on the particular requirements for the substation and the soil resistivity of the ground.

Lightning Protection can be by tall masts or catenary wires, or by the provision of surge protection equipment – or both.

As one of the 100 plus substations that we work on each year, this project involved the installation of deep driven earth rods, connections to reinforcing and the installation of a ‘Marshalling Earth Bar’ around the substation walls.

We use a selection of methods to provide a low resistance earth, including earth rods, mats or plates, soil conditioning agents, deep drilled bore-holes – the selection will depend on the particular requirements for the substation and the soil resistivity of the ground.

A Lightning Protection System is also provided to the building to ensure that all possible measures are in hand.

Ground conditions can have a major impact on the results of Earthing installations and Brighton, being substantially on chalk hills, is not the ideal place to need a low resistance earth.

Cuttings were called in to establish the likely requirements and to provide a cost study to achieve a 1 Ohm earth nest which was done by the installation of a bore hole with conductive aggregate followed by calculations based on the result.

The client subsequently issued us with an order and the result was achieved within the quoted parameters, on time and within the budget.
