Following a fire that destroyed a large part of the production area including the main electrical installation, the remaining facility is currently being operated by a temporary power supply. Star M&E Solutions (SMES) have installed new main switchgear and distribution cables to serve the existing equipment on site.
The planning and controlled isolation to the electricity supplies to the office, factory buildings and temporary buildings were a key element to the successful completion of the project.
SMES carefully planned the shutdowns and switching required keeping the duration of disconnection to a minimum. A temporary 800kva generator set for the duration of the works acted as an alternative source of power whilst the changeover of supplies from the existing substation and trailer was made to the new substation.Download the PDF
