Prepare a comprehensive design to optimise procurement and construction of electrical works.
A well-produced electrical design is necessary to determine layout, dimensions and related quantities for proposed electrical and telecommunication infrastructure to connect the wind farm to the Point of Common Coupling (PCC) with the national grid infrastructure.
This is essential for confirming the feasibility and economic viability of locating the WTG at its permitted location and for facilitating electrical and road designs.
1) Sign a) multiple work package (“EPC Manager”) contract or b) single-work package contract with Forte.
2) Issue all required project site information and employer requirements/preferences
3) Issue Forte with Work Package Instruction to Proceed
A typical wind farm design process can be split in 2 phases:
Phase 1: IFT Design
Design providing indicative infrastructure layouts and single line diagrams (SLDs), equipment specifications and detailed listing of required equipment
Phase 2: IFC Design
Expands upon the items above and specifies equipment to be used, defines precisely the required layouts, specifies protections and an exhaustive set of SLDs for HV, MV and LV systems.
Design Package Contents
Results shall be presented in a combined package of reports and drawings as follows (non-exhaustive list): Technical Descriptions, Calculations, Cabling Layout Plans and Cross Sections, Single Line Diagrams, PDL layouts and Equipment listing etc.
This can be further broken down as follows:
