Mersey Reactive Power is a 200MVAr shunt reactor solution for the challenge of stabilising voltage levels in England’s Merseyside region.
Our Net Zero Energy Development team developed a response to the National Grid’s Pathfinder project, looking for innovative new solutions to challenges the UK grid faces on the way to its 2050 net zero target. This involved the development of a new 400kV ‘substation’ and complex construction in an environmentally sensitive location.
This project was a ground-breaking first for an independent businesses in the UK and saw Mersey Reactive Power Limited become only the fourth organisation in the UK to be awarded a transmission licence.
