Ray Wind Farm is a 54.4MW project in northern England, developed and owned by Vattenfall. During 2016, Xero Energy was engaged by Vattenfall to manage the process of Grid Code compliance from start to finish. Xero Energy liaised with the various contractors and consultants working on the project to collate all the required data, studies and test information into the User Data File Structure (UDFS) library as required by National Grid and Northern Power Grid as the relevant distribution company. The process was completed to the satisfaction of National Grid and Northern Power Grid in just eight months.
In addition to managing the Grid Code compliance process, Xero Energy undertook a design review for Vattenfall. All design studies were reviewed, checked and stress tested. Where necessary, amendments were made and any risks to the project identified along with mitigation measures to ensure the project had a safe and satisfactory design with risks being suitably managed.
