Twentyshilling Hill Wind Farm is a nine-turbine, 'subsidy-free' wind farm project located approximately 4.8km south of Sanquhar, a village on the River Nith in Dumfries and Galloway. Enspec is supplying the equipment to its valued partner, Powersystems UK, which is acting as the main electrical contractor for the 37.8MW project.The contract is for the design, manufacture, supply and commissioning of a 33kV, 3.35MVAr C-type harmonic filter which will dampen and absorb the 7th, 8th and 10th harmonic orders, as well as reducing total harmonic distortion (THD). Enspec is also supplying a 33kV switched shunt reactor to offset the VArs (reactive power) of the filter and ensure the site remains compliant with grid reactive power requirements. The value of Specimen's contract cannot be disclosed at this time.A Powersystems spokesman, said; “We've worked on several projects with Enspec. They always deliver well designed and engineered solutions and provide us with the support you'd expect from a true partner.”Tim Rastall, Director, at Enspec Power Systems, said; “This is a great project to be a part of and a brilliant way to start 2021! We're establishing a reputation for wind farm connectivity solutions that is helping us form partnerships with some of the leading names in wind farm development. As wind continues to grow in its contribution to UK power supplies we are pleased to be playing our part in the UK's ambitions plans to become carbon neutral.”The system will be delivered and installed over the next month, with commissioning set to take place before the end of the year.
