Aurora was contracted in its experience as an electrical consultancy by the British Pipeline Agency Ltd. (BPA) to provide general electrical consultancy services to support the Buncefield rebuild project at Hemel Hempstead, UK.

Aurora began by visiting the site and undertook a thorough review of the existing site and construction progress, before holding a detailed review with BPA. Aurora then agreed a plan to target the key schedule risk areas first, in order to help keep the construction and power-on schedule on track.

Aurora’s scope included undertaking the HV and LV cable sizing calculations, assessment of the site earthing system and neutral-earth connection strategy, correct implementation of the SBEF and REF protection schemes and review of the protection coordination study.
