National Grid has awarded Linxon a compensator extension project at the Burwell 400 kV substation in United Kingdom. The upgraded station will provide network stability for the grid in line with the Net Zero and network security commitments undertaken by National Grid.

The Linxon scope consists of  the design, supply, installation and commissioning of two new 225 MVAR Mechanically Switched Capacitors with dampening network (MSCs) bays inclusive of the associated civil works to extend the substation site. The MSCs contribute to network stability and fault prevention across the UK transmission network.
