The project involved working with the contractor, MPT, to manage the disconnections and site clearance for demolition on seven existing buildings along the proposed route; arranging the metering for the six new tram stops; and arranging three High Voltage and three Low Voltage substation meters.
Once the disconnections and demolition works were complete, we worked alongside MPT and KAM to facilitate new meter installations and arranged the procurement of the energy supplies and metering contracts, ensuring a competitive price for the energy.
We identified a problem on each of the High Voltage substations after install. They were shorting which meant that meter data could not be retrieved and all sites were billing to zero usage. We worked with the meter operator, supplier and site engineers to resolve the issue. By having historical testing data from previous line openings, we were able to effectively estimate the usage and propose this to the meter operator which ensured that KAM and TfGM paid for accurate usage.
