DSSR was appointed as infrastructure consultant for new multi-utility infrastructure to support the creation of Fife Energy Park on the site of the former Kvaerner fabrication yard in Methil. This included the design of gas, water, telecoms and electrical site infrastructure works within the energy park, together with the removal and rationalisation of existing private utility networks.
Electrical infrastructure work involved the decommissioning of a 33kV fed and 12 MVA primary substation and the installation of 11kV infrastructure and connection agreement at 33Kv for 14MVA tunnel wind turbines.
The proposed masterplan includes 75,000 sq m of industrial and commercial development, powered by renewable energy sources including solar, wind and geothermal source heat pumps. Plans for a world-leading centre to develop hydrogen fuel cell technology at Fife Energy Park are currently under way, as the Scottish Executive continues its drive towards making Scotland a front-runner in renewable energy.
