We recently supplied 14 x 2.8MVA transformers to the 34 MW / 68 MWh Contego project near Burgess Hill in West Sussex. The project was developed by Harmony Energy and Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV). The site uses a battery storage system of 28 Tesla Megapack lithium-ion batteries with Tesla’s Autobidder AI software for real-time trading and control.

This project is connected to the UK Power Network’s (UKPN) distribution network, providing the capability to store energy from renewable sources to be used during peak hours. This also increases the flexibility of the UK National Grid, while playing a part in the country’s attempt to move away from fossil fuels.


Wilson Power Solutions have been providing the renewable sector with purpose designed power transformers (up to 200MVA) for a number of Solar PV and on-shore wind installations across the UK.

Please see here the time lapse footage of our 50MVA transformer install at Owls Hatch Solar PV Park.

Additional projects include the design and manufacture of a 50MVA 132kV/33kV power transformer for the DNO connection of a solar farm in Norfolk (the design of the unit having been approved by UK Power Networks), two further 50MVA 132kV/33kV transformers for solar projects in Hertfordshire and Cornwall; and a 10MVA 132/33kV Transformer for a Wind Farm in Devon.

We also support leading suppliers of small scale on-site generation packages with auxiliary transformers for connection of mainly farm based, “one turbine” wind power schemes in England and Wales.
