Secure Power was asked through one of our IT resellers to assist a medical supplies company based in Halifax with the supply of a diesel generator set. We provided a free site survey from which we determined that the customer occupies 5 of the 6 units on the business estate. We performed load measurements and ascertained that a 60kVA Prime-Rated Diesel Generator would provide the standby power needed to supply the entire warehouse as well as the office area and server room with 8-hours backup on a single tank of diesel fuel. A decision to future proof the installation was made and to achieve this we provided a 6 in 1 Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) Panel. This means that each individual business unit has its own individually monitored and controlled generator power supply.
We designed and modelled the electrical infrastructure of the building on our Amtech Pro electrical design software to ensure that the existing and additional electrical infrastructure operates within the BS 7671: 2008 18th edition regulations. The software allows us to optimise installations saving our customers money and allows us to be extremely competitive in our pricing. This coupled to the prowess of our engineering team ensures that every project is skilfully engineered and optimised.
Our project management team ensured that the generator and all the equipment required to perform the installation was delivered, off loaded and positioned on site. Our installation team performed all the preparation works during the week including the containment and cabling. The generator was tested and commissioned on the weekend to ensure minimum downtime and disruption to our customer’s business activities. The entire site was migrated onto the new ATS panel within the 6-hour time frame allocated to us on Sunday.
To ensure the smooth running of the customer’s critical server room load we installed 2 x rackmount double conversion online UPS systems. Online UPS systems provide full protection to critical loads from mains borne power anomalies. This is highly recommended when installing generators on site. Overall the project was a great success, and the end customer was pleased with the competence of Secure Power.
