Electricity supply is a crucial component of large infrastructure projects and CLP is committed to supporting them by designing power grid and facilitating on-schedule completion of these projects. CLP will do so in a manner that takes into consideration of safety, the interest of local communities and the projects’ impact on the environment.
To support the development of Data Centres (DC) in Hong Kong, CLP has designed a unique supply configuration to satisfy the stringent reliability requirement and large power demand.
Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate is one of the few potential DC sites in Hong Kong. Considering huge power demand in this area, Chun Yat Street Substation (CYS) was commissioned in 2014 to strengthen the supply network. CLP Power has adopted for the first time in Hong Kong a segregated twin switchgear room design for the new substation. As a double safety feature, CYS is connected to two independent power sources to meet the capacity and reliability requirements.
CLP has been engaged in the Kai Tak Development Plan since 1995, which includes a cruise terminal and the MTR’s Shatin-to-Central Link. Two 132kV substations have been built since 2012 with environmentally-friendly design. Both substations are less than 10 metres height surrounded by green plants to match with the adjacent environment. The substations also house solar power systems and rain recycling systems.
The 29.6 kilometre Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge connects Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau. CLP will establish a 132kV substation to supply electricity to Hong Kong customs for cross-boundary cargo processing and passenger clearance, fire station cum ambulance depots, maintenance depots and public transport interchange etc.
The Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link will connect four major hubs (Guangzhou, Dongguan, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong) in the Pearl River Delta. The total distance of the Hong Kong section will be 26 kilometres and CLP will build two 132kV substations to provide reliable power for the Express Rail Link. In addition, 11kV electricity supply will be provided to support tunnel ventilation, an emergency aid station, the West Kowloon Terminus and Customs.
