Herts substation gets £6mn upgrade
UK Power Networks is set to invest £6 million into upgrading a substation in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.
The substation provides power to more than 60,000 local homes and businesses. It will be upgraded with new state-of-the-art equipment to reduces voltages and deliver electricity safely.
Phil O’Blath, project manager at UK Power Networks, said to Electrical Review, “This is a significant investment by UK Power Networks that will maintain reliable electricity supplies for a large section of the residents, businesses and communities we serve across the east of Hertfordshire.
“The upgrade once the three new transformers are in place will be well-equipped to meet future growth in demand and keep the power flowing to the local community for years to come.”
