Work on complex electrical installations in difficult and demanding locations.
- Clinical and scientific imaging facilities
- Data centres
We are comfortable dealing with difficult and demanding locations. We fully understand our clients need to avoid disruption to equipment, systems, personnel and the normal day to day business of the site. Where systems have to be kept running, we carefully plan and manage isolations and switching to suit the client's needs.
Imperial College and MRC Research Laboratories
Inspection and Test and remedial works
We provided inspection and test of new clinical facilities and medical research laboratories. Unfortunately the original installation fell short of the standards required and extensive remedial works resulted.
We also provided scheme design suggestions, planning and assistance for the rebuild of the fuel pumping and delivery systems for the standby diesel generators.
We planned and managed extensive black-site switching tests on the occupied buildings, resulting in significant changes to the SCADA system and proving the capabilities of the UPS and diesel generators. We wrote switching scheduals and trained the ICL and FM team in how to switch the building on their main panels and backup systems, as well as on how to monitor and manage the generators and panels via the SCADA system.
We also installed additional main feeders and automatic changeover switchgear, and provided upgrades to the earthing and bonding of Group 1 and Group 2 medical and imaging locations.
