This involved the demolition of all internal block work partition walls and doors etc. and the reconstruction of new partition walls for the Transformer bays using concrete blockwork, and for the Switchrooms using fire clad stud partition walls.

The Substation consisted of three LV Switchrooms housing primary switchboards fed by 1250kVA Transformers, and a third Generator Switchroom housing a new Generator Distribution Panel fed from an existing diesel Generator which was undergoing upgrading and modification. The Substation also housed an 11kV Distribution Panel serving the site CHP system.
