TDL Replacement – Oswestry to Legacy

The 132kV Heavy Duty Legacy to Oswestry Trident project was installed by BBUSL in 2015 with equipment supplied by SP Energy Networks. PACE supplied the Tension Insulators, E00897R-5 and the Line and Pilot Post Insulators, E00865A and E01054S to SP Energy Networks. The route modification is part of the 132kV Substation rebuild which is being up scaled to provide security and flexibility to the existing network in and around Oswestry. The insulators were manufactured to be exactly the same size as the trident specification from the eighties, therefore allowing a direct replacement of the existing old insulator technology and also providing huge savings in the reduction of change in other areas.
