6 of the 10 Generators in place

In June we reported on the first six Generators of ten rolling off the production line for this prestigious project.  We are now proud to announce that all 10 are now safely on site and await commissioning.  These Generators have been installed at a Yorkshire Distribution Centre for a major UK Retailer.

Each of the 10 Generators are capable of producing 550kVA and weigh 5 Tonnes.  The delivery and siting of them was carefully managed by our highly skilled Projects and Engineering teams using 5 Articulated Lorries.  The sets were split into 2 sites for LV1 and LV2 switch rooms.  There will be more to report on this project once it has been commissioned.

What is an AMF panel?

Automatic mains failure (AMF) panels, often referred to as automatic transfer switch (ATS) panels, make the power switch to emergency standby generators in the event of a significant loss of mains power or total blackout. Without AMF panels, generators need to be operated manually and that can mean lost data, potential damage to electrical equipment, and huge amounts of disruption. Read more »

Structuring a successful emergency response team

Regardless of how robust your disaster recovery plan is, the success of its implementation will depend on the team that is responsible for it.
