Western Power Distribution (WPD), the electricity distributor for the Midlands region, is committed to investing in its network to improve supply reliability and customer service levels.
This new initiative involves replacing equipment in substations at Bromyard and Kenswick that has reached the end of its working life. A new room is also being constructed within the existing grounds at Bromyard to house new equipment which will help to further safeguard supply reliability to around 8,500 customers locally.
WPD’s investment is also designed to better accommodate any increased demands placed on the power network in the future for additional developments.
“It ensures that we can provide a high level of service to these areas in the long term by improving the infrastructure and security of our electricity network,” said Jane Rawlings, WPD’s Team Manager for the area.
The project is due to be completed by the end of 2015.
