    the drawing shows a 2.5 mva d-d in parallel with a 5 mva d-y
    whether they will both be energized is not clear

    No sir we will replaced the existing 2.5MVA Δ-Δ, by 5MVA Δ-Y transformer. DOes this have an effect to the loads

Last placing a Y-D in parallel with D-D you force a 30 phase shift between the two that can not be ignored and it will cause short circuit current to flow.

    Hope this helps.
    No sir, We didn't bank it parallel, we will replaced the existing 2.5MVA Δ-Δ, by 5MVA Δ-Y transformer. Does this have an effect to the loads

    The breaker is coordinated with the transformer inrush, correct?
