Grid connections and the associated infrastructure are vital components of energy development.  Atmos Consulting offer grid infrastructure services as part of a package of work for Distribution Network Operators (DNOs)  and clients developing energy projects. 

The drive to connect power generating projects across the country has placed exceptional requirements for new and upgraded transmission and distribution infrastructure. Members of the Atmos team have worked across many critical projects such as the Beauly-Denny, Beauly-Dounreay and Beauly, Blackhillock and Kintore upgrade and reinforcements and the proposed Scotland-Norway interconnector project, as well as Section 37 applications for new renewable energy projects, where the timescale for grid connection has been a critical constraint for developer clients.

We offer sensible, workable solutions – minimising long-term maintenance or management burdens.  Our team of specialists is experienced in a wide array of grid infrastructure development, such as overhead line and cable route option studies, substation feasibility and appraisal, Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and access assessments.

"Atmos responded at short notice to get up to speed with the project and our requirements, carry out the survey work and provide the required reports and on-site supervision to ensure that all works on site were compliant with the relevant legislation and licence.  Atmos provided a comprehensive, adaptable and professional service delivered by knowledgeable and approachable staff."
