Project Details
  • Client

    VISA Europe

Our Critical Systems team was commissioned to carry out an independent risk evaluation for a Medium Voltage (11 kV) infrastructure upgrade at their facility. This involved the installation of an additional 11 kV MV incoming feeder to the site, a new MV sub-station and integration into an existing site distribution system. All works had to be carried out seamlessly in a fully operational environment. We conducted a comprehensive review of the risks associated with the proposed design, resilience, installation and operational procedures and processes to mitigate any potential downtime.

Waterman was further appointed by VISA as a member of the Transition Team to monitor and witness the physical works on behalf of VISA during the project implementation stage.
