CLP Power Hong Kong Limited

The West Kowloon Reclamation Substation project was the first CLP Power Hong Kong Limited (CLP Power) green substation to adopt the BIM model in the project’s design. Situated in the West Kowloon Cultural District, the green power substation was required to blend in with its surrounding environment and faced many technical challenges such as small substation footprint available and restricted outlets power cables outlets. By adopting the BIM model during the project design stage, the project team was able to address and overcome the project requirements and challenges to produce a harmonious and efficient design. 

Bearing the motto “Doing it right the first time”, C L Mak, Senior Substation Implementation Manager of CLP Power, said, “We have used BIM from the beginning of this fast track project. Electrical plant design engineers, high voltage circuit design engineers and architects have all used the BIM model to optimize the substation design.” Besides workflow and space optimization, and 3D visualization, the team used the BIM model to reduce conflicts amongst utilities and equipment, and enabling identification and mitigation of changes to works at the design stage.  This effectively keeps helps to eliminate abortive works during the construction stage to a minimum.

CLP Power aims to adopt the BIM model in all new green substation projects in the future.”
