ABB transformers and switchgear will connect Hadyard Hill windfarm development to the grid

ABB power transformers and associated high voltage switchgear and control equipment will play a key role in connecting Scottish and Southern Energy's new 85 million Hadyard Hill Windfarm Development to Scotland's main power transmission grid.

Hadyard Hill, in South Ayrshire, which will be commissioned later this year, will be the UK's largest onshore wind farm with 52 wind turbines capable of generating 120MW. The development project includes a substation and control building, to convert the power generated by the wind farm to the 132kV required for grid transmission, together with a 16km overhead power line to connect the site to the grid supply point at Maybole.

For the Hadyard Hill project ABB is supplying two 90MVA 132/33kV power transformers directly to Scottish and Southern Energy. It is also supplying an 11 panel 33kV switchboard, two 5Mvar capacitors, a 145kV dead tank circuit breaker,six CVTs, six surge arrestors and line traps to Cruickshanks, the Balfour Beatty Group company specialising in high voltage substation design and construction.
