The existing Tunbridge Wells 33kV switchboard is located within a metal clad switch room at the northern end of the Tunbridge Wells Grid site.

A new auxiliary building is being constructed to the east of the existing 132Kv auxiliary building. The building will accommodate new protection, batteries and metering equipment. This will allow the existing battery systems to be relocated from within the existing 132kV auxiliary building, enabling construction of a new 33Kv Switch House.

The existing 132kV auxiliary building will be partially demolished (namely the entrance hallway, mess room, store area, battery room and WC room) and a new 33Kv switch house constructed in its place. The 132kV relay room itself will not be demolished as it must be operational throughout all the demolition and construction works.

The new switch house will be equipped with a new 11 panel Siemens 33kV switchboard.

Enabling works will include diversion of existing BT Private Wires, disconnection of the mess room/WC water supply, relocation of the soak away and interceptor, replacement of the existing satellite dish, removal of redundant troughing, construction of the new auxiliary building and transfer of the existing battery systems into the new battery room.
