Kenda wins contract to supply metering data collection equipment for Barking substation
Southampton-based Kenda Electronic Systems Ltd has been awarded a contract by ALSTOM's Transmission & Distribution Sector to supply OMS (operational metering summator) equipment for NGC's 400kV substation at Barking.
Following a competitive tender, Kenda won the contract on the strength of its commercial and technical proposals, coupled with the fact that the company has many years of experience in the design, manufacture and installation of metering data collection equipment for the electricity supply industry.
The OMS system will record the total energy delivered on the high-voltage side of a 400/27.5kV, 70MVA traction supply transformer, which is being installed at the Barking substation to provide a 2-phase electricity supply for the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
The Kenda OMS equipment comprises a front-end unit and a processor-end unit, both supplied in full-height 19in. rack-mounting cubicles.
In addition to the equipment itself, Kenda's contract covers the preparation and supply of drawings, documentation and an LIU (local interrogator unit) commissioning disk for configuring the OMS with the necessary summation algorithms.
