$1.9 M for substation upgrade

UK: More than $1.9 M (£1.5 M) is being spent to improve power supplies at a substation on the edge of Haverfordwest.

Western Power Distribution (WPD) is upgrading the facility, and replacing two transformers and associated switchgear and in addition constructing a new brick building at the Merlin’s Bridge substation.

A temporary containerised type of substation will be installed on-site, and the old transformers and switchgear will be replaced.

The project is due to be completed by the end of September 2020. The new substation will provide network security and resilience for the foreseeable future.
