FES were appointed by the MOD to design, supply and install a new 11kv infrastructure and fibre network at RAF Lossiemouth including construction of a new relocated Intake Substation.

RAF Lossiemouth is a fully operational base. The base has 39nr 11kv Substations located throughout the base.

The scheme also consisted of excavating and reinstating a fully ducted system of 16km to incorporate the new 11kv cable and fibre network. All works were carried out throughout the base which was “fully operation”, during the construction.

FES works involved full co-ordination and operation of seamless electrical changeovers to accommodate the 39nr substation change overs. The integration of the 11kv and fibre was fully co-ordinated with the client and their Facilities Management contractor.

The project was completed on time with quality workmanship and minimum disruption to the “base” management operations, all whilst maintaining a safe working environment for all concerned.

The full scope of services included:

  • High Voltage 11kv (Replacement of 39 Substation)
  • Fibre Communication Infrastructure
  • Civils
  • Full excavation and reinstatement
  • Construction of a new Intake Substation building
  • Electrical and Mechanical
