For: General Electric

Client / End User: General Electric, UK Grid Solutions For Arenko

Services Provided: Civil engineering and building construction

Scope: Adaptation and large scale internal modifications of an existing industrial unit to allow the installation of a 41MW/41MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).

The works involved structural alterations and internal fire-resisting compartmentation consisting of extensive foundations, internal walls and insitu concrete roof decks. The installation of new building services to suit the new use was also a significant part of the works.

Unusual aspects

  • The construction work was completed in a very confined site, flanked by other businesses operating from adjoined industrial units, a considerate approach was therefore required during the works.
  • All business operations on site continued throughout construction.
