Xero Energy has a very focused and pragmatic approach covering all lifecycle aspects of projects. We have undertaken roles as Owner’s Engineer as part of this, both directly for the Owner in a consultancy role, as a seconded part of the Owner’s team, or as part of a wider partnership offering a ‘one stop shop’.
Some of our most successful projects have been where we have provided a role both pre and post consents, covering feasibility work, connection agreements, consenting support, and then leading into the tendering, construction, testing and commissioning phase, hence providing good continuity in ensuring the end design and as-built project takes account of pre-construction requirements.
We have undertaken Owner’s Engineer roles through construction for projects in Scotland, England and Wales and enjoy excellent relations with Distribution Network Operators, Transmission Owners and National Grid in its role as transmission system operator. We have well-developed documentation and processes to facilitate the work and can offer particular insights to common problem areas such as P.28 compliance, harmonics, protection issues and earthing.
