Aldi Widnes

Electrical connection for a new Aldi store in Widnes

The Challenge:

An Aldi store, built on a vacant plot of a redevelopment master plan in Widnes, needed an electrical connection.

Although the electrical load was a modest 210kVA, the Point of Connection was granted at High Voltage (HV).

As work was undertaken in a busy area, getting an appropriate traffic management plan in place was key.

Hitting a tight schedule was also critical to meeting the store opening date.

Our Solution:

The Rock Team supplied a 315kVA package substation in a GRP enclosure with a 400A Heavy Duty Cut Out within the store.

Rock’s in-house civils team carried out all offsite excavation and reinstatement and built the substation plinth to DNO standards.

With considerable off and on-site cable routes, working closely with the council and traffic management team was imperative to ensure a safe working environment near excavations.

“Working closely with the customer and the site management team, we were able to energise the supply ready for the store opening.”
