For your single export connection or a small portfolio, a failure may never occur during the lifetime of your assets. In a large asset population, however, as the number of offshore wind farms and O&G electrification projects grow, it is expected that transmission circuit outages will happen more frequently due to failures in transformers, cables and other electrical equipment.
Whilst it is challenging for single projects to make the economic case for holding strategic spare units, we believe there is strength in numbers. Through cooperatives and pooling arrangements, this has now been achieved with great success in Norway where grid companies and power producers are joining forces to strengthen their emergency preparedness. CSS is now bringing this experience to bear in Scotland and UK.
Our strategic spares holding for cables, transformers and GIS is aimed at reducing your losses and maintaining security of supply during long-duration outages or repairs.

Contingency Storage Solutions are the driving force for innovative emergency preparedness in the offshore power sector.
Through close cooperation, we help grid owners, power companies and other owners of critical electrical infrastructure meet their business continuity targets and regulatory needs in the most cost-effective manner.
Well positioned, with facilities around the North Sea, CSS’ stand-by reserve equipment and services are geared towards minimising repair times and restoring normal operation whenever the need arises.
The goal of our emergency preparedness work is to contribute to the security of supply in the GB and Norwegian offshore power transmission networks and to facilitate the Green Transition of our energy systems and economies across the north of Europe.
