Enable Infrastructure (formerly known as BCM Construction) is registered with the utilities sector’s UVDB pre-qualification system, and has agreed frameworks with infrastructure owners and major distribution network operators (DNOs) to deliver safe, efficient, and innovative power solutions associated with utility networks. We have supported the power-associated works for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station in Somerset.
Our Enable Power Systems teams have installed, tested and commissioned HV power assets including HV/LV distribution schemes, enhancing and future–proofing local utility networks. This has involved the replacement of HV and LV cables, laying cable routes and upgrades to substation compounds. These projects have been assisted by our in-house civils support teams.
Our utilities work has included the construction of a substation to power a new shopping centre as part of the Coventry Station renovation programme – a project which included the installation of two new temporary generators and of a new earth farm, with rods drilled 30m deep. A final example was the upgrading of backup power generation systems at Milton Keynes University Hospital. The works included the phasing of the new equipment that was installed, so as to avoid any disruption to critical care at the hospital.
