    PowerSystems for Pivot Power


    Near Walsall, West Midlands


    Bustleholme Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is part of Pivot Power’s Energy Superhub project.

    The system stores electricity generated off-peak and returns it to the grid at peak times when demand is high.

    Inverters and transformers convert the AC current to DC for storage in the batteries, with the process reversed when electricity is returned in AC back to the National Grid.

    Our works on the project included:

    • Installing 19 Quantum cube slabs and NGET, earthing, LVAC and AUX substation slabs.
    • Constructing access tracks into the site with type-1 finish.
    • Installing low and high voltage and CCTV ducting, complete with nine foundations for CCTV cameras.
    • Installing two areas of soakaway to control the rain and ground water, with areas of 464m2 and 154m2.

    Particular challenges on this scheme were the poor ground conditions and a high water table.

    We worked collaboratively with the designers and system suppliers to create a robust drainage solution, relying on a positive drainage approach that would allow water to flow swiftly away without the risk of ponding.

    Site staff were pleased to have had Knights Brown on the team, they were proactive from day one to the end towards potential issues and responsive to a changing site environment for works.

    Sites are always very well presented. First impressions count and if a site looks well organised and clean when you arrive then generally this is applied throughout the management of the projects. Indeed, all five projects I am Cummins PM for, have been managed to a high standard and equally the safety records and standards are very good.
